Our View: No reason Maine should speed up GMO labeling
On 26, Jan 2016 | No Comments | In Blog, GMO Labeling | By Admin
Nothing’s changed since then, except for further confirmation of the safety of foods containing GMOs. So it remains unnecessary to eliminate the trigger clause – the part of the labeling mandate that relies on other states – as proposed in a new bill, L.D. 991.
However, we do support the other provision of L.D. 991. It would revoke a clause automatically repealing the original law if the other states don’t pass legislation by 2018, thus allowing Maine to continue to stand as a supporter of reasonable transparency on food labels.
