CT is first state to pass GMO labeling law
Hi all! If you haven't already seen the news buzzing around social media, yesterday was a historic day in Connecticut ! Connecticut is the first state to pass a GMO labeling law! The house voted and the final tally was 134-3! You could hear cheering throughout the halls of the Capitol, truly a moment of bliss.
Here is an article from yesterday's events from CT News Junkie I am proud to say that I have been working on the leadership team of GMO Free CT for the last 18 months, and I am more than thrilled to see this happen. I got involved with this issue to educate about GMOs and will continue to do so even after we have labels! Here are a couple pictures from my day at the capitol yesterday!
