On Oct. 1, NYCSGA held a tele-town hall on the New York state GMO Labeling bill that is currently being pushed through the state legislature.
The call featured corn & soybean farmer Todd DuMond and Cornell Plant Breeding Scientisit and Professor, Margaret Smith.

It's important to contact your state legislators to express your opposition to this GMO labeling bill. I'm sure we all agree that consumers have a right to know about their food, but a state by state patchwork of laws makes interstate commerce incredibly difficult, which will only drive up food bills.
