Stabenow and Roberts working GMO labeling?

Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan addresses farm broadcasters during a meeting on Capitol Hill.

Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow says she and Senate Ag Committee Chairman Pat Roberts have finally sat down to talk about GMO labeling.

“I’ve been putting together various proposals and working with the Chairman.”  She says, “Five weeks ago I gave him complete legislation and this week he finally wanted to sit down and talk about it and see what we could work out.”

She tells Brownfield whatever legislation goes to the Senate will need a supermajority of 60 votes to pass and pass the House before Vermont’s law goes into effect July 1st.  A previous attempt by Roberts for a voluntary system failed a Senate vote in March.
