WASHINGTON – Today, the House of Representatives voted on H.R. 1599, Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act. Maine’s Second District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, released the following statement:
“Despite pressure from House leadership, I listened to Mainers in the 2nd District and voted in support of keeping GMO labeling on our foods.
“I have always believed that Americans should have all the information necessary to make informed decisions about the foods they eat. Mainers deserve to know what is in the foods we eat and give to our kids before putting it on the kitchen table.
“In Congress, I will continue to vote in the best interest for Mainers.”
