Our Long, National GMO Labeling Nightmare Is Over

Val Giddings writes in Innovation Files that the U.S. House of Representatives voted 306-117 to pass the Roberts-Stabenow bill that cleared the Senate the week before by a 63-30 vote.

This battle in the culture wars has been clearly lost by the insurgents.
