The American Feed Industry Association\'s Vice President of Legislative, Regulatory & State Affairs Leah Wilkinson released the following statement regarding the passage of recent GE Labeling legislation:
\"The American Feed Industry Association tonight applauds the Senate\'s passage of S. 764, 63 to 30. The Roberts-Stabenow agreement is must-have legislation to prevent a patchwork system of state GE labeling laws. The balanced, common sense agreement provides consumers ample information to assist in making informed food purchasing decisions, while giving food companies options of how to provide that information.
\"The feed industry thanks Sens. Roberts and Stabenow for their untiring efforts negotiating this bipartisan legislation. We now urge the House to follow suit, passing this language as soon as possible.\"
