Vermont House Judiciary Committee: Pass H.112 to require labeling of Genetically-Modified foods

    1. Jeremy Hansen
    2. Petition by

      Jeremy Hansen

      Berlin, VT

In poll after poll, the vast number of Vermonters indicate that they want to know whether or not the food they eat contains genetically modified ingredients. The Vermont legislature currently has a bill in the works (H.112) that will require labeling of such foods.

http://www.leg.state.vt.us/database/status/summary.cfm?Bill=H.0112&Session=2014

Unfortunately, while this bill has been passed by the House Agriculture Committee, the bill has been stuck in the House Judiciary Committee since March 13th and it does not appear to be under consideration until April 2nd at the earliest. The longer the bill stays in committee, the less likely it will pass. We need to take this opportunity to communicate to the House Judiciary Committee how important it is that they take up and pass the bill so that it can receive a vote by the full House!

Please sign this petition to tell the Vermont House Judiciary Committee that you want them to take action on this bill.

If you feel like doing more, consider calling a member of the Judiciary Committee to tell them to move H.112 to the floor without delay, especially if you see one of your representatives in the list below.

I encourage you to take up H.112 in the Judiciary Committee as soon as possible so that the bill has a chance to be voted on by the House. This is Vermont's opportunity to spearhead labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and answer the call of the majority of Vermonters who want to know what they are eating.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      We deserve to know what we are putting into our bodies. Monsanto is killing us and causing obesity with this unnatural genetically modified food.
