LABEL GMO INITIATIVE FOR THE HAWAII STATE ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE CANCELLED
Honolulu City Council Chair Ernie Martin has decided that resolution 12-319 will not be placed on the December 5 council agenda.
Reso 12-319 was heard earlier this week by the Executive Matters and Legal Affairs Committee. At that hearing, dozens of testifiers came in person and some two hundred testimonies were sent in by email all wanting their right to know what is in their food. Not one testimony was submitted to oppose that - yet, the majority of the council did not honor the will of the people and now has shut down all discussion by not putting it on the agenda for a hearing.
So the e-newsletter I sent yesterday to mobilize for the 5th of December and requested you to please come testify to support the labeling of GMO's . . . is moot, not relevant anymore.
The council may take it up next year . . . .wait and see.
