GE Food Labeling Rule

The Attorney General is responsible for creating rules under Act 120—the genetically engineered food labeling law. Foods produced with genetic engineering are commonly known as genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The Office of the Attorney General is in the process of drafting these rules, including outlining specific labeling requirements. As part of this process, the Office recently released a GE Food Labeling Rule Questionnaire, developed to gather public input early in the rulemaking process and to field questions about the law.

Summary of Questionnaire Results

To give input and ask questions, you can email the Attorney General's GE Food Rulemaking Team at ago.GEFoodLabelingRule@state.vt.us. Communications submitted to this email address are subject to disclosure under Vermont’s Public Records Act, 1 V.S.A. section 315, et. seq. This email address will act as a repository for public input and not necessarily as a channel of two-way communication. The Attorney General’s Office anticipates sending out periodic answers to Frequently Asked Questions in response to the inquiries and input received through this channel. To the extent your email requires a specific response, a member of the GE Food Rulemaking Team will be in touch with you as soon as practicable, given the volume of input we receive.
