May 2, 2013   Responding to widespread demand from Consumer and Environmental Groups, Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) has sponsored the Genetically Modified Food Right-to-Know Act (HR-1699). The full text of the Act was released by the GPO today. As always, our readers are cautioned not to rely upon media coverage, but to read the full text of the Bill. A version of the Act has also been introduced in the Senate by Senator Barbara Boxer.

The House Bill is attached below. When the Senate version is released by the GPO, we will also post that as well. Please read both, as there may be significant differences in wording.
