2014 Green Awards Nominations Being Accepted

I rarely indulge in shameless self promotion, but I’m making an exception for Morris Media’ Group’s 2014 Green Awards.

Right to Know CT Plans Rally at the Capitol as GMO Labeling Bill Heads into the Home Stretch

Yesterday, Right to Know CT launched a petition asking House and Senate leadership and Governor Malloy to enact HB 5117 and we have 350 signatures already!

Right now we need to urge the leadership of the House and Senate to call HB 5117 before the session ends on May 9. The support from CT representatives and senators is strong.
