AN ACT to amend the general business law and the agriculture and markets
  law, in relation to the labeling of genetically engineered foods

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
New  York  state consumers have the right to know whether the foods they
purchase have been entirely genetically engineered or partially produced
with genetic engineering so they can make informed purchasing decisions.
Labeling is necessary to ensure that New York consumers  are  fully  and
reliably  informed about the products they purchase and consume. Further
the legislature finds that:
  (a) Currently, there is no federal law that requires food producers to
identify whether foods were produced with genetic  engineering.  At  the
same time, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not
require safety studies of such foods. Unless these foods contain a known
allergen,  the  FDA does not require the developers of genetically engi-
neered foods to consult with the agency. Consultations with the FDA  are
entirely voluntary;
  (b)  Mandatory identification of foods produced with genetic engineer-
ing can provide a critical method for tracking any potential  short-term
and  long-term  health  effects of consuming foods produced with genetic
engineering;
  (c) Polls consistently show that the vast majority of the public wants
to know if their food has been produced with genetic engineering;
  (d) More than sixty countries, including Japan,  South  Korea,  China,
Australia,  New  Zealand,  Thailand,  Russia,  the European Union member
states, and other key United States trading partners, have laws  mandat-
ing disclosure of genetically engineered foods;
