URGENT: The DARK Act now disguised as Planned Parenthood defunding

Wed, Mar 16, 2016


[I humbly apologize for two GMO mailings within a short period, but this is beginning to look a war in Alice’s Wonderland.] From the Institute for Responsible Technology at 11:51 AM (the DARK Act vote was earlier scheduled for 11:45). This is absolutely unbelievable. Call now to cut off this attempt to disguise the DARK Act as an anti-Planned-Parenthood bill. Maine: 202-224-2523 Susan Collins 202-224-5344 Angus King Others: 202-224-3121 or ——– Forwarded Message ——– *The DARK Act has been manipulated!* ** Dear Friends, The DARK Act has been manipulated and we need your phone calls and emails this morning! The text of the voluntary GMO labeling bill has been redrafted and sneakily presented as an amendment to Defund Planned Parenthood. There are two actions being taken on the DARK Act right now: First, Amendment 3450 to Senate Bill 764 Defund Planned Parenthood would replace the text of the Planned Parenthood bill with the new text of the DARK Act. See text of amendments SA 3450, Section 1. Call your Senators and tell them to vote NO on accepting Amendment 3450 to bill 764. Then, in the event Amendment 3450 is accepted, and Senate Bill 764 becomes the new DARK Act, you will want your Senators to vote NO on Bill 764. NO on Amendment 3450 and NO on Senate Bill 764. *Demand mandatory on-package GMO labeling – no compromise!* _______________________________________________ HCCN mailing list
