Dear MoveOn member,
I'm Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley with an important update: We've won round one! In a first vote, the U.S. Senate failed to advance the DARK Act.1 But the lobbyists for Big Ag aren't going away. Let's keep up the pressure—consumers deserve to know what's in their food. Click here to sign the petition to the United States Senate, which says:
The U.S. Senate just voted against what is known as the Big Ag-supported DARK Act, which would prohibit states from requiring labeling of genetically modified foods.
Now the Senate has another choice, one that would put in place a national standard that requires labeling of foods containing GMOs. It's called the Biotechnology Food Labeling and Uniformity Act, and it needs your support.
This is our chance to stand up to Big Ag and bring GMO labeling to all 50 states, but time is running out.
Add your name right away!
—Senator Jeff Merkley
