We were presented with many different studies. Some credible, some less than credible. If there were health risks associated with GMOs that were definitively determined to be true then we probably wouldn't have been working on a labeling bill.

Regarding pesticide use, the USDA's own reporting claims that herbicide use has increased with the rise of GMO crops. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/24/usda-gmo-report-idUSL1N0LT16M20140224

Thanks. This is the first time I've ever experienced Reddit. It's impossible to respond to everyone and of course there will be the assumption that I'm dodging questions. It would be a full-time job to answer every one!

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (which represents most of the big food companies), the International Dairy Foods Association, Snack Food Association, and the National Association of Manufacturers.

Yes, this is in the bill. Our Attorney General has the authority to require a line that essentially states the FDA's determination that GMO is no different than other foods.
