Labeling of modified foods heads to Conn. governor


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Legislation requiring special labels on food sold in Connecticut that contains genetically modified ingredients, so long as other states pass similar legislation, is heading to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's desk for his signature.

The House of Representatives on Monday passed the bill on a 134-3 vote, giving final legislative approval to the bipartisan agreement reached over the weekend. Cheers could be heard outside the Hall of the House after the vote was taken.

The compromise bill requires food entirely or partially genetically engineered to be labeled.

The mandate would take effect after four other states, including one bordering Connecticut, enact a similar law. It also requires the aggregate population of any Northeast states that enact such a law to comprise a total population of more than 20 million people.
