Californians to Vote on the "Right to Know Act"

While the Biotechnology industry tries to tweak favorable legislation out of Congress, critics of GMO food are pushing for more control in California, with a ballot measure that will require the labeling of foods containing genetically engineered products. The so-called ‘Right to Know Act’ appears as Proposition 37 on the November ballot, qualifying with a more than a million signatures. A coalition of opponents includes the biotech industry, farmers and grocery groups. Supporters are hoping that people power will allow them to overcome well-funded foes.
