A bill that would require labeling of genetically modified organisms is dead for the year after the Senate failed to adopt the committee report of its passage from that committee.
The Senate voted to move the bill to another committee but it was a moot point. A majority of the Senate voted to not adopt the committee report and afterwards to move the bill to Senate Corporations and Transportation instead of the Senate Judiciary Committee as it was originally scheduled.
But the initial vote to not adopt the committee report resulted in the bill being “deemed lost,” which means it is for the year.
The bill’s sponsor Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe, announced the news on Twitter Thursday morning.
