Representative Tony Hwang, a member of the Environment Committee, will discuss HB 5117, An Act Concerning Genetically-Engineered Foods, and the state legislative process. Analiese Paik from the Fairfield Green Food Guide will share testimony she delivered to the Environment Committee, which was reported in the Wall Street Journal, and discuss ways to support the bill. Tara Cook-Littmann, a holistic health counselor and former state prosecutor, will discuss GMOs, how prevalent they are in everyday foods, and how the labeling bill supports our right to make informed choices. According to national polls, over 90% of consumers want GMOs labeled. Connecticut is one of several states currently considering mandatory labeling of foods containing GMOs.
