NH’s GMO Labeling bill up for vote this Wednesday – last chance to act!

GMO labeling in NH

NH Right to Know is urging a final push of action this week as NH’s representatives vote on GMO labeling legislation:

On Wednesday, January 15, 2014 New Hampshire’s House of Representatives will be voting on the amended version of HB660. We expect that it will be highly debated on the floor.

3 things you can do before Wednesday if you want to see HB 660, NH’s GMO labeling law, pass:

1. Call Your Reps
It is urgent that we have as many people call their Representatives as possible between now and Tuesday. Please contact your own reps, and ask them to vote “Yes!” on the Amended version of HB660. Please ask others to contact their reps, too. Find their contact info online >

2. Call the Speaker of the House

We also ask that you call the office of Speaker of the House, Rep. Terie Norelli. Tell her your name, your town, and let her know that you support Amended HB660. (603) 271-3661terie.norelli@leg.state.nh.us

3. Help with Business Endorsers

Finally, we are still working on our list of NH entities that support GMO labeling. Is your business, farmer, health food store, healthcare provider, association, etc. listed on our website? Please ask them to sign up by Monday afternoon!

Thank you for your support.

Respectfully,

    Every product in America is labeled and doesn’t cost anymore. If GMOs are so good for you, why fight tooth and nail to lie about them and spend millions to keep from labeling them. Since 1996 the first induction of GMOS many forms of sickness and death have been brought on the American people FROM GMOS. Paid off officials from the FDA USDA and former Monsanto workers who now hold government jobs vote against good standards all in the name of GREED!!!
