A bill introduced by U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts to create a federal standard for labeling genetically modified foods cruised through the U.S. House on Thursday and was sent to President Barack Obama’s desk.

“I’m pleased that members of the House today sided with sound science and the American farmer,” Roberts said in a statement.

The House passed the legislation by a wide margin, 306-117. The vote came one week after the Senate approved the bill and one day after the White House indicated Obama will sign it.
