Why we're here
Our goal is to keep New Mexican citizens informed about agriculture & GMO labeling. There has been a lot of talk about whether there should be Mandatory Labeling of GMOs in New Mexico lately. The change from our current system to a GMO labeling system would affect a lot of New Mexicans, in a lot of ways, so it's important that we understand who it affects, how it affects them, and what we should do about it.
How You Would Notice Labeling
- Higher food costs
- Higher taxes
- Less public control, more gov't control
- Fewer local jobs (Farming & Ranching)
- Less funding to feed the needy
- Smaller selection of national goods
- Fewer local produce selections

Why It Matters
When it comes down to it, New Mexico just can't afford all of the problems that come along with GMO labeling. Food prices would increase, it would be less likely for other states to import food to us, and much more; and in the end, there isn't even scientific backing to say GMOs are any different for your body than non-GMOs.
