Submitted by Oregon Right To Know.org – LABEL GMO’s
Time is short so I’ll be brief:
The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote TODAY on Monsanto’s dream bill, H.R. 1599 a.k.a. the DARK Act.
Here’s what you need to know about the DARK Act. It would:
1. Forbid states from labeling GMO foods AND nullify existing labeling laws
2. Prohibit any local government oversight of GMO crops
3. Weaken USDA and FDA regulations on GMO crops
4. Allow GMOs to be labeled as “natural”
WE MUST SPEAK OUT AGAINST THIS BILL.
Dial 1-877-796-1949 RIGHT NOW to be connected with your representative in Washington and tell him or her to VOTE NO on the DARK Act!

Editor’s Note: You will be connected to Sen. Feinstein’s office after inputting your zip code. You’ll hear a message to either hold for up to two minutes, or to call back in 15 minutes. Within one minute I was speaking with Dixie. I told her I was for mandatory labeling of all GMO’s and against HR 1599. She asked me for my zip code and if I was representing any organization.
