Washington, D.C. (July 8, 2016) – The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) congratulates the U.S. Senate for approving the bipartisan Roberts-Stabenow GMO labeling and disclosure solution and now urges passage by the U.S. House of Representatives.
“BIO applauds last night’s Senate vote to pass the GMO disclosure legislation,” said Jim Greenwood, BIO’s President and CEO. “We thank Senators Roberts and Stabenow for their leadership and congratulate them, along with other Senate and House leaders, on advancing this much-needed legislative remedy to the GMO disclosure issue.”
“But the work isn’t finished,” added Greenwood. “BIO urges the House of Representatives to take up and pass this bill without further modification next week so that it can be sent to President Obama for his signature before the Congress adjourns for the summer recess.”
