Public Hearing on NYS GMO Labeling Bill!



Please be there if you can. Send written testimony by Aug 5!
This is our chance to be heard and the first step in getting a labeling bill passed in NY!

From GMO Free NY
The NY Assembly Committee on Consumer Affairs and Protection has decided to hold a hearing on July 30th for GMO Labeling Bill A3525-A. It will be held on the Lehman College Campus in the Bronx, NY, at 10 am. Details are here: http://assembly.state.ny.us/comm/Consumer/20130716/.

It is incredibly important that we fill the seats of this room with GMO labeling advocates from New York. Can you help us make this hearing a standing room only event and garner it the attention our bill deserves by spreading this news? The posting on the GMO Free NY Facebook page can be seen here: on.fb.me/13wjwSK. Please feel free to copy and share or modify in any way. But please do share all of this information with as many social media outlets, email lists, friends, colleagues, and organizations you know. Our showing MUST impress the committee so that when the bill's sponsor -- Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal -- reintroduces the bill at the start of the next legislative session in January 2013, it is immediately voted upon and moved through the Assembly to a floor vote. (And then hopefully the Senate will do the same!)

Testimony is by invitation only, but written testimony can be submitted and sent no later than August 5th to:

Matt Aumand
Committee Assistant
Assembly Committee on Consumer Affairs and Protection
Room 513 - Capitol
Albany, New York 12248
Email: aumandm@assembly.state.ny.us  

We urge you to send in written testimony!
We all need to stand together on this if we want GMO labeling in NYS to be a reality. Thank you for your support and help! Let's fill all of these seats with our people!!!

Best,
Stacie and Kat
