Support Maryland's Need to Know GE Legislation!

Take Action! If you believe that you and your family should know whether or not your food contains genetically-engineered (GE) ingredients, then you can help!

Maryland Senate Bill 0778 and its partner legislation, House Bill 1191, sponsored by State Senator Karen Montgomery and State Delegate Adriana Kelly will require manufactures to label food that contains GE ingredients. Testimony for these bills will be heard by the House Health and Government Operations Committee and the Senate Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs committee on March 11th at 1 PM.  

Please show your support for this important legislation by coming to Annapolis and urging your legislators to give you the right to know!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Testimony for the House and Senate committees will be happening simultaneously at 1 PM in different locations.  The testimony will be heard by the House committee in Room 241, House Office Building Annapolis, MD 21401. The testimony will be heard by Senate committee at 2 West Miller Senate Building, 11 Bladen Street, Annapolis, MD 21401-1991.

If you can’t attend please submit your own written testimony! If you need help writing to the committee, please review Beyond Pesticides draft testimony.

IMPORTANT NOTE: written testimony must be submitted by 12:00 Noon on the day of the hearing for distribution prior to the hearing and you must submit 25 hard copies to the committee staff.  The address for the committees are:
