The mailbox has quite a number of emails asking the legislature to pass a law requiring labeling on foods containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
I agree that this is an important public policy issue and I do support a national program to label GMOs in all foods. However, handling this issue on a state-by-state basis is unworkable. Most of our food supply is distributed across state borders; this makes enforcement of the labeling requirement extremely difficult. While I will not introduce legislation in the Colorado House of Representatives, I will support our Congressional delegation in passing a national requirement that GMOs should be labeled in all foods.
