USDA rule-making

Update: August 2016. The battle for transparency in food labeling will now shift to the USDA, which is empowered by the Roberts bill (DARK Act) to interpret and finalize GMO labeling regulations over the next two years. According to WhiteHouse.gov: “We are committed to providing multiple opportunities for engagement, such as listening sessions and the opportunity for the public to provide written comments.”

The USDA has set up a website where updates will be made available:

We will notify our members when there is an opportunity for public input.
