The Hill, a publication covering congressional news, counted efforts by the Coalition for Safe and Affordable Food on GMO labeling as one of the top 10 lobbying victories of 2016.

Congress passed the landmark agreement in July and President Barack Obama signed it into law the same month.
The law explicitly preempts state GMO labeling laws and directs the U.S. Department of Agriculture to establish the national standard.
