Letter: Food labeling bill would impose crushing costs
Although it’s framed as a matter of transparency, our state legislators will soon have to take a position on a bill that would impose crushing costs on small businesses across New Hampshire – and on the state itself!
This legislation, mandating the labeling of genetically modified foods, is supported by people who tell a story unsupported by facts. Their claims to the contrary, genetically modified ingredients are safe for people and help to responsibly feed Americans, using less water and less fertilizer than non-GM crops. That means the food that’s more affordable for hardworking families in New Hampshire and across the country. Our legislators should make decisions based on science – and what’s best for our state – and oppose this bill that would impose heavy new costs on small businesses and New Hampshire.
