Vermont will become the first state to enact a law requiring labels on foods with genetically modified ingredients after the governor signed the bill into law on Thursday afternoon. The bill will go into effect in July 2016.

“I am proud of Vermont for being the first state in the nation to ensure that Vermonters will know what is in their food.

Peter Shumlin (D-Vt.) said in a statement after the bill passed. “I wholeheartedly agree with them and look forward to signing this bill into law.”
