(NaturalNews) Regardless of whether the Republicans or Democrats occupy the White House, federal regulatory officials continue to disregard concerns about genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), and stonewall all efforts to mandate proper GMO labeling. As a result, individual states are having to craft their own GMO labeling legislation, including a new bill recently introduced in Washington State that would mandate GMO labeling beginning in 2014.

The Epoch Times reports that Washington State Senator Maralyn Chase has sponsored a new bill that would require both raw GMOs and processed foods containing GMOs to be properly labeled beginning July 2014. Any food product containing GMOs will have to bear a list outlining which ingredients are natural and which ingredients are GMO. Several other GMO labeling bills have also been introduced in the state legislature.

So simply put: "people have a right to know what they are eating".
To think that we currently live in a country where the source and type of food that is sold to us can be kept secret. It sounds like another era, and another country that existed before the Iron Curtain came down.
Watched the movie The Right Stuff again last night. Wouldn't it be nice to get that "can do spirit" back again? How about that, "you sign up with a company, work until retirement and then are rewarded for years" mentality? Remember when loyalty between employer and employee, government and citizen was mutual? banghead
