Center for Food Safety has worked with grassroots movements in individual states, counties, and municipalities to improve the oversight of genetically engineered crops and foods. To this end, CFS has a number of “model” state bills or local initiatives to better protect non-GE farmers, prohibit GE crop planting or require labeling. Through these efforts CFS has successfully assisted in the passage of a number of bills around the country in the past. Interested parties seeking counsel on getting an initiative started in your city or state should contact CFS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To date, more than 70 bills have been introduced in over 30 states to require GE labeling or prohibiting genetically engineered foods.
