Just in from Washington


GMO Labeling Bill Introduced

Washington--"Our farmers and ranchers are encouraged by the bipartisan leadership of Reps. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Jim Matheson (D-Utah) and Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) for introducing H.R. 4432, The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act," American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman said in a statement Wednesday. 

The measure makes it clear that the Food and Drug Administration should be the nation's foremost authority on the use and labeling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients.
