WHY IS THIS BILL SO BAD? Here's what you need to know:
•The bill immediately preempts Vermont, Connecticut, Maine and Alaska’s GMO labeling laws and prevents any other states from passing similar legislation.
•The bill creates a new definition of GMO, excluding most of the genetically engineered foods currently on the market and new technologies such as CRISPR/cas9, gene editing and gene cassettes.
•The bill provides for a patchwork of labeling options -- discriminatory QR codes, phone numbers, and symbols yet to be created by the USDA -- and would result in consumer confusion.
•The standard for non-GMO is not clearly defined and an acceptable level of GMO contamination has not been determined, leaving this open to the corrupt USDA to decide.
•There are no penalties for non-compliance and no recalls.
•The bill would not take effect for two years.

I signed on.
