    Folks here in Vermont are not happy with it. Our law required clear labeling and when big-agri couldn’t stop us despite spending vast sums of money they bought a Federal override instead that basically nullifies any kind of meaningful GMO labeling. Prior to our being overridden one grocery store chain here in VT said that they were losing about 20% of the products it carries. Some companies were just refusing to label their products and were abandoning the VT market instead. Given our total population is only 626,000 we are a drop in the bucket to the big boys, but they went and bought Congress anyway. As Bernie & Trump say, the system is rigged.

    Ah yes – good ol’ federal supremacy and the late, great 10th Amendment. Nothing’s changed since Michigan (and others) tried to thumb their noses at the fugitive slave act. Power, control, and money.
