Oregon lawmaker plans to introduce federal GMO labeling bill
Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-OR is working on a bill that would make the labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms a matter of federal law, a spokesperson confirmed yesterday. If passed, the bill, which is still in its early formative stages and which has Rep. Jared Polis, D-CO as potential co-sponsor, presumably would supercede the numerous state-level efforts underway to pass GMO labeling laws.
