LD 991
Session - 127th Maine Legislature
C "A", Filing Number H-596, Sponsored by
LR 1698
Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and before the summary and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. PL 2013, c. 436, §2, sub-§2  is amended to read.

2. Repeal. If no certification has been made by the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry under subsection 1 before January 1, 2018 2022, this Act is repealed on that date.’


This amendment, which is the majority report, strikes and replaces the bill. It extends by 4 years, from 2018 to 2022, the date before which 5 contiguous states, including Maine, have to adopt mandatory labeling of genetically engineered food in order for Maine's law to go into effect. If that contingency is not met, Maine's law is repealed.
