Putting Will of Monsanto ahead of Will of the People, Connecticut Governor Stops GMO Labeling Bill
Unfortunately, in a devastating turn of events, before the bill had a chance to make it to the floor for debate and a vote, in a closed door meeting, Governor Malloy and his attorneys interfered in the legislative process by removing Section 2 of the bill. Section 2 was the heart of the bill, the section that called for mandatory labeling of all products produced with the process of genetic engineering, leaving HB 5117 meaningless. Governor Malloy chose to put the interests of the monstrous biotech industry in front of the rights of the people of Connecticut.
The Governor has yet to make a statement about his actions, but individuals within
While it is yet to be determined whether governor Malloy is afraid of the biotech industry or actually in their pocket, one thing is clear, HB 5117 landed on the Governors desk because it was about to pass the CT House Legislature. Legislators and activists in the Right To Know CT campaign alike are outraged that they were robbed of due process.
