While Connecticut enacted legislation (H.B. 6527) in June 2013 requiring that foods containing genetically modified (GM) ingredients be labeled as such, once neighboring states have adopted similar laws, Governor Daniel Malloy (D) held a ceremonial bill signing in a health-food café in Fairfield on December 11, 2013. Now known as Public Act 13-183, the bill’s provisions are summarized in Issue 486 of this Update. The governor said, “I am proud that leaders from each of the legislative caucuses can come together to make our state the first in the nation to require the labeling of GMOs. The end result is a law that shows our commitment to consumers’ right to know while catalyzing other states to take similar action.” See Press Release of Governor Daniel Malloy, December 11, 2013.
