(By Noel Brinkerhoff) Republicans in the U.S. House have swiftly moved to adopt legislation that would prohibit states from adopting laws requiring labels on food containing genetically modified organisms (GMO).

The House Committee on Agriculture this week approved HR 1599, which would create a voluntary federal labeling standard while also preventing states from forcing companies to put GMO labels on their foods. The bill, which cleared the committee without debate, is now headed to the House floor.

“Members of Congress are really looking for a federal solution here,” Colin O’Neil, director of government affairs for the Center for Food Safety, told The Hill. “I think we’re going to get to that rubber-meets-the-road point where members realize they are being sold on a bill that doesn’t solve anything consumers are asking for, which is a mandatory labeling standard.”

Critics have called HR 1599 the “Mother of All Monsanto Protection Acts” after the company that has long opposed GMO labels, as well as the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act.

Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association characterized the legislation as “anti-consumer,” “anti-democracy and anti-state’s rights.”

Vermont already has a law in place requiring GMO products to be labeled as such. Big Food has been fighting in court to get the law overturned.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
