Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa)

Are we working to pass state GMO labeling laws, only to have Congress take away that right?

Right now, a House and Senate conference committee is hashing out the details of the 2013 Farm Bill. Within the House version of that bill is an amendment offered by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) that has the potential to wipe out states’ rights to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The King Amendment is designed to take away California’s right to regulate food that comes from factory farms. Specifically, Rep. King wants to overturn California’s Proposition 2, a law passed by the voters that says farm animals should have enough room to spread their limbs and turn around.

But the amendment includes sweeping language about regulating states’ rights to regulate food and farming. Sweeping enough that we believe it could threaten state GMO labeling laws.

There’s still time to keep this dangerous amendment out of the final version of the Farm Bill. Please call your U.S. Representative and two Senators today  at (202) 224-3121. Ask them to oppose the King Amendment and support states’ rights to regulate food and farming.
