Democrats, GOP both against GMO label law
- Posted on September 4th, 2013 filed in Newspaper
Dr. Debra Strauss, of the Dolan School of Business, was quoted extensively in an article about how bills requiring GMO labeling introduced in 2002 in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate never got out of subcommittees. What- Over the next two years, 13 bills and two resolutions on agricultural biotechnology were introduced, Strauss reported in a 2006 article in the Food and Drug Law Journal. Only the resolutions, both supporting a U.S. complaint against the European Union for restricting GMO crops, passed. In April Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Barbara Boxer of California introduced GMO labeling bills, but they’ve failed to gain traction so far. The same goes for a similar House bill sponsored by Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore.
