UPDATE: NJ GMO labeling bill sent to committee
On February 6, 2012, S1367, which requires the labeling of foods containing genetically modified material was introduced and referred to the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee. Please contact the chair of this committee to express your support and request that he post the bill.
I just received correspondence from one of the sponsors and this is not a dead issue. This is the contact information for the Committee chair. I have already written him. If you live in NJ, please do the same. NJ can lead the way to doing what is necessary to protect the health of our citizens and our environment. Monsanto and these other companies have huge bucks and PR firms to influence votes. Let's show them that our voices are in greater numbers and we are not forgetting about this.
