Despite potential roadblocks, GMO labeling set to go into effect on Friday
VTDigger.com - 6/30/2016.
By Mike Polhamus - With Vermont’s GMO labeling law set to go into effect Friday, manufacturers and retailers still don’t know exactly how or whether they will have to comply.
As Historic Vermont Legislation Goes into Effect, Congress May Pull GMO Labels Off of Grocery Shelves
Common Dreams - 6/30/2016.
Statement by Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch - Tomorrow, Vermont’s historic GMO labeling law goes into effect.

But this victory may be fleeting. The Senate will vote next week on a federal bill that would nullify Vermont’s law, and other state labeling efforts percolating, thanks to the heavy hand the ag-biotech industry wields over our congressional representatives.

But there's one thing the Waverly farmer doesn't have: the right to fix his John Deere 8235 R if it goes on the fritz.
