Dear Representative Inslee,

We’re writing to thank you for co-sponsoring the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act, H.R. 2916.

Our 40,000 member households strongly support your leadership on this issue. You’re probably aware that an ABC News poll shows 92% of Americans want mandatory labels on genetically engineered foods.

Please encourage your colleagues in the House to co-sponsor this important measure.

Respectfully,

Tracy Wolpert, Chief Executive Officer
Randy Lee, Chief Financial Officer
