Opposed to GMO Labeling

Although it’s framed as a matter of “transparency”, our state legislators will soon have to take a position on a bill that would impose crushing costs on small businesses across New Hampshire – and on the state itself. This legislation, mandating the labeling of genetically modified foods, is supported by people who tell a story unsupported by facts. Their claims to the contrary, genetically modified ingredients are safe for people, and help to responsibly feed Americans using less water and less fertilizer than non-GM crops. That, in turn, means food that’s more affordable for hard-working families in New Hampshire and across the country. Our legislators should make decisions based on science – and what’s best for our state – and oppose this bill that would impose heavy new costs on small businesses and New Hampshire.
