President Obama officially signed the GMO labeling bill.
It mandates labeling and stops a growing patchwork of state labeling laws, including the first passed one in Vermont.
Now the bill moves on to the rule making process, where the Secretary of Agriculture will establish standards and procedures.
In a Statement the American Farm Bureau says the disclosure system will give balanced and accurate information. They along with the National Corn Growers and American Soybean Association thank President Obama for signing the bipartisan legislation.
