VTDigger “Bill requiring labeling of genetically engineered food saved from procedural death” Background Article on VT GMO Labeling Bill.

Excellent background article about very hopeful news coming out of Vermont on their mandatory GMO labeling bill, amid biotech lobbying, a process scheduled to conclude within 6 weeks. “Some, like Margaret Laggis, lobbyist for the Biotechnology Industry Organization, and Tim Buskey, with the Vermont Farm Bureau, dismissed consumers’ concerns as stemming from ignorance. ‘Consumers know nothing about agriculture,’ Laggis told the committee. She formerly lived on a Hardwick dairy farm, and she called visitors ‘retarded’ who would come by and ask questions like, ‘What’s the ratio of boys to girls that you milk here?'” Here’s a link where we can help Vermont counter biotech’s disinformation with our donations.
