So would Schumer vote for this bill with this change, knowing full well that it would take away a state's right to gmo labeling? Sounds to me like his priorities are in the wrong place.
Please contact Schumer and Gillibrand and tell them that when it comes to you and your family's health, there is no "compromise." Tell them to vote "no" to any TPP bill that includes legislation prohibiting state's from making their own rules about gmo labeling. (In addition to all the other good reasons why this bill should be voted down.)
According to Democratic leadership aides, Senators Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, and Chuck Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat, have proposed a compromise to Republican leaders: First, hold a separate vote on legislation aimed at discouraging so-called currency manipulation by American trading partners, which could be vetoed by the president. Then, wrap the fast-track authority he is seeking with a more encompassing bill, including assistance for displaced workers, extension of an African trade accord and other trade enforcement measures.
