GMO Food, Flame Retardants in Kid\’s Clothes Topic of Off-Site Legislative Hearing

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

The legislature\’s select committee on children will hold a rare off-campus public hearing Thursday night in Fairfield on a series of bills related to children\’s health and the environment.

The panel will hear testimony on three measures: an act concerning the labeling of genetically modified organisms in children\’s food, an act concerning the use of flame retardants in children\’s clothing and an act concerning certain chemicals and their effects on children.

The hearing will be held at the Barone Campus Center at Fairfield University. It will begin at 6 p.m.

Holding legislative hearings outside the state Capitol complex in Hartford is a new initiative to boost public participation and make it easier for citizens to testify on matters of public policy.
