ASA Joins Effort to Ensure Appropriations Bills Don’t Undermine BE Disclosure Law

Sep 27, 2018

Late last week, American Soybean Association (ASA) joined others in the ag value chain on a letter to House and Senate Appropriations Committee leadership on a provision impacting the disclosure of bioengineered (BE) food.

The House and Senate are conferencing their respective versions of the appropriations bill and the letter aims to ensure that the final bill does not include any language that would undermine USDA’s uniform disclosure standard or create confusion for consumers. USDA is expected to finalize rules on BE foods later this year.
