Vermont is leading the national GMO conversation - Could this state be the first to enact a genetically modified food labeling law?

The bill is blazing a speedy trail to Governor Peter Shumlin's desk.

On April 15th, the Vermont Senate cast its votes for a bill that would require GMO labels on food products; 26 - 2. The next day, a revised version passed through the House with a vote of 114 - 30.
