Hot Dish Politics
Peterson will support GMO labeling bill if it passes the Senate

Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota will support a Senate bill that requires food sold in the U.S. to carry labels disclosing genetically modified ingredients if it reaches the House for a vote. Peterson, a Democrat who is the ranking minority member of the House Agriculture Committee, reached that decision after studying a new Senate proposal. If passed by both chambers and signed into law, it would become the nation's first mandatory on-package labeling law for genetically modified organisms - known as GMOs. Peterson voted for a House bill that outlawed mandatory on-package designation of genetically engineered ingredients. But he said that the need for a national labeling policy in lieu of state laws like one that takes effect in Vermont July 1 was more important than deadlocking over on-package GMO labels.
