Here are the highlights from news conferences, rallies, and advocacy days held in the Capitol today.
- ABATE (Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education) of Pennsylvania sponsored a Motorcyclist Rights Rally in the Main Rotunda . Over 100 riders flocked to the Capitol to voice their support of “Freedom of Choice” in the use of helmets for trained and experienced riders.
- Farmers, restaurateurs, and food advocates joined lawmakers supporting Pennsylvania’s legislation to label genetically engineered food, or genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery) is the prime sponsor of SB 653 and said, “To be clear, my bill does not ban GMOs. It just gives consumers more information to make better choices.”
