Give consumers a choice and label genetically modified foods
Bangor Daily News - 4/25/2013.
Editorial - At first we were skeptical about requiring the labeling of genetically modified food in Maine, thinking it a fringe issue. But it turns out a large majority of Maine residents from a number of political affiliations want to know what they’re eating. A bill, LD 718, sponsored by Rep.

Bangor Daily News - 4/25/2013.
By Tom Walsh - Augusta: The State House debate over requiring labeling of food products that have been genetically modified is one of many similar debates now raging throughout the country. It is also a debate that has been underway in Maine for 20 years.
