The Vermont Legislature considered a GE food labeling bill this session but Democratic leaders decided not to pursue the plan because of fears that the legislation would result in a lengthy and expensive legal fight with a number of major chemical companies.

Sanders said this is a classic states' rights issue.

"This is a very conservative amendment," he said. "It says that the American people should have the right to know what is in the food that they and their children are eating and if that food contains genetically engineered products," said Sanders. "This amendment grants states to authority to label genetically engineered foods it is not a mandate."
