Vermont GMO Labeling Law Mooted as President Signs DARK Act Into Law

People generally decry Congress for the glacial rate at which it addresses the pressing issues of our time, but if so, we should be proud at the haste with which they acted to counter Vermont's GMO-labeling law.  Vermont's law only went into effect on July 1, requiring all purveyers of food products to disclose on their label if they contain genetically modified ingredients.  A mere 30 days later, a federal replacement was signed, sealed, and delivered:  Obama signed into law the so-called DARK Act, passed by both houses of Congress just this month, that supercedes and negates Vermont's law, and according to critics, significantly waters down GMO labeling nationwide.
