Maine’s GMO Labeling Law

Maine’s Right to Know GMO Labeling Campaign has been doing great work.

Last week, Maine’s House and Senate passed a law requiring mandatory labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Thousands of Mainers helped make LD 718, Maine’s GMO labeling bill, the most talked about issue at the Maine State House this session. Responding to consumers and the public, both the House and Senate voted to pass LD 718. The Maine House of Representatives voted 141– 4 in favor of the bill. The Maine Senate passed the bill with a unanimous vote of 35-0.

Now we are banding together to ask Governor LePage to sign LD 718 into law to label GMO’s.
