Is Senator Kristen Gillibrand Selling Out New Yorkers Health to Monsanto?

Is Senator Kristen Gillibrand Selling Out New Yorkers Health to Monsanto?

GMO,Monsonto, Kristen Gellibrand

Today, after countless polls showing Americans overwhelmingly want GMO food labeled, the head of the Senate Agriculture Committee just released his long-awaited GMO bill – and it’s a huge gift to Monsanto and Big Food!

• The bill would block your state from labeling GMO foods, and kill existing labeling laws in states like Vermont, Maine and Connecticut.

• Leave it up to giant corporations to ‘voluntarily’ label GMOs – which has been tried and failed.

• Make it virtually impossible for the government to ever require GMO labeling nationwide.

You deserve better than this. Make sure your New York Senator, who is on the Committee voting on the bill this week, hears what you want!

There is a toll-free number that will patch you through to your Senator’s office. Dial 1-855-977-1770

Tell the staff who answers that you want the Senator to:

• Oppose the ‘Roberts GMO bill’ in the Ag Committee
• Allow states to enact their own GMO labeling laws
• Make labeling mandatory, not voluntary, with clear, easy-to-read labels on the package

In New York our Senator is Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY): (202) 224-4451, who neither answers her phone or allows you to make your comments known. She has blocked her constituency from letting their options be heard. It might be because Gillibrand, Kirsten (D-NY) was paid a $1,000 to stand with this bill and who voted to not able GMO’s on prior bills. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, at a congressional hearing. Gillibrand is on the Senate Agriculture Committee and was instrumental in writing the Farm Bill according to the Associated Press.

Since writing this, I have let my voice be heard, so you can be counted if you are patient, but the problem still remains that Ms. Gellibrand has accept funding from Monsanto. That is public knowledge if you know where to look.

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman, proposed legislation sets up a federal voluntary GMO labeling system, which would pre-empt state laws that would require GMO labeling.

The new bill would amend the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 by requiring the Secretary of Agriculture to create a national voluntary GMO labeling standard. The legislation will establish a national framework that places standards in the hands of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and creates a campaign that will educate the public on both the safety of GMOs and on the way in which they can find out more about the foods they purchase.

The Senate Agriculture Committee is scheduled to mark-up the proposal Thursday, Feb. 25. Click here to read the bill.
