New York: GE labeling bill goes down in committee

The following is an edited excerpt.

“The fact that this bill made it to an agenda demonstrates the distinct desire on the part of the New York State Assembly to tackle tough issues, and is also illustrative of tremendous impact that the advocates nationwide have had on this debate,” Rosenthal said.
