Support needed for bill to mandate GMO labeling

There is a bill to get labels for genetically modified organism foods up now. It will probably be referred to Rep. Clarence Nishihara, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee. He has already said that he doesn’t plan to hear it.

So, right now, lobbying efforts should go toward convincing Rep. Nishihara, with sheer volume, that he needs to hear the bill.

If you know constituents from his District 17 – Waipahu, Crestview, Manana, Pearl City, Pacific Palisades – they would have the most weight.

Think about the Freedom of Information Act, isn’t this the same thing?

Please call his office, everyone who feels it’s important.
