Take Action: Help Hawaii Label GMOs – SB 2279

This is an email I received from Down To Earth. Please make the call to the Hawaii legislators listed below and request that they introduce Senate Bill 2279.

This legislative session, elected officials are considering SB2279, a bill requiring the mandatory labeling of genetically modified fruits and vegetables that are grown in Hawaii, for sale in Hawaii. We need your support to help pass the bill. We have a right to know what’s in our food.

Down to Earth is asking you to join us in calling Sen. Clarence Nishihara, chair of the Agriculture Committee, to schedule the bill for a hearing, pass it, and report it out of committee in time to meet a Feb. 16 deadline to keep this bill moving forward. His contact information is as follows:

Senator Clarence K Nishihara (D – S District 18 Waipahu, Pearl City, Crestview)

Hawaii State Capitor, Room 204

Phone: 808.586.6970

Fax: 808.586.6879
