2013 – The American state of Connecticut passed a legislation (134 yes, 3 against) that will have the mandatory labeling of GM foods and it’s ingredients.
For the law to become active, the legislation requires that four other state in the region pass GMO labeling laws, and that their population of at least 20 million.
Actually, Alaska was the fist state to have a GMO labeling law, but it was restricted to labeling genetically engineered fish and shellfish. Thus, Connecticut would become the first state to adopt labeling broadly.
