Connecticut: Advocates push for GMO labeling law

The following is an excerpt.

A public forum with state legislators and advocates for the labeling of foods containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) took place Tuesday. The forum was well-attended with people signing in from Colchester, Waterford, Stonington, Montville, Groton and New London. Participants gathered to show support, ask questions or learn more about the issue and about activity in Hartford concerning two bills on the issue.

HB6519, an act to require the labeling of genetically engineered food, received a favorable vote and passed out of the Public Health Committee Tuesday. Another bill, HB6527 and act to require any infant formula or baby food sold or intended for sale in the state of Connecticut to include clear and conspicuous labeling if the infant formula or baby food contains any genetically engineered materials also recieved favorable votes this session.
