Vt. Senate committees to hear about GMO labelingFebruary 03,2014

MONTPELIER — Two Vermont Senate committees are planning to take testimony on labeling of food produced with genetic engineering at an upcoming public hearing.
The session is set for 6-8 p.m. Thursday in the House chamber.
The Senate is reviewing legislation to require labeling — a measure that was passed by the House last year.
Supporters say consumers should have a right to know whether their food was produced through genetic engineering.
Opponents, including the biotech industry, say there’s no difference between genetically engineered food and that produced by conventional methods, so labeling isn’t necessary.MORE IN This Just InWASHINGTON ó Two senior Islamic State group leaders were killed in U.S. Full StoryVATICAN CITY ó Pope Francis rightly got credit for helping bring the U.S. Full StoryMAIDUGURI, Nigeria ó Islamic extremists killed 35 people and kidnapped at least 185 in an attack...
