Stop the Monsanto "Dream Bill"

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I urge you to reject Rep. Pompeo's bill that preempts state's rights to require labeling of genetically engineered foods, or GMOs.

This bill is supported by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents Monsanto, Coca Cola, Nestle and other companies which want to restrict states and Congress from requiring GMO labels. I urge you to reject this industry bill and instead require GMO labels for all foods.
There are currently 1,917 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) introduced a bill in Congress that would kill labels for genetically engineered foods — even at the state and local level! We have a right to know what is in our food so that we can make educated decisions about the food we eat.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), with about 300 member companies like Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Nestlé and Smithfield, represents the largest food, beverage and biotech companies — and now on behalf of all these companies, they've gotten Rep. Pompeo to introduce a bill that will prohibit states from creating their own laws around labeling genetically engineered foods, while also making it illegal to create "mandatory" labeling at the federal level.

Even Connecticut and Maine, which have already passed legislation to require labels on GMO foods, would not be allowed to enact their own laws if this passes!

More than 90% of people want labeling on foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients, and recently more than 20 states have considered their own labeling laws, but the GMA's anti-labeling bill would nullify all of these efforts!
