        We Won! Indiana Fails to Ban rBGH Milk Labels!

The Indiana House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture and Rural 
Development was trying to ban dairy labels that tell consumers whether 
the cows were injected with genetically engineered bovine growth hormone 
(Monsanto's Posilac, also known as rBGH). If Bill 1300 had become law, 
rBGH dairy labels would have been banned.

Due to overwhelming opposition from consumers and rBGH-free dairies, 
Rep. Friend passed on the opportunity to hold a House vote on Bill 1300, 
and now the Indiana legislature is adjourned and HB 1300 is dead.
