Oregon GMO Labeling Initiative Qualifies for November Ballot

An initiative in Oregon to require the labeling of genetically modified foods has qualified to be on the ballot for a state-wide vote in November. The Oregon Secretary of State's Office says it has certified over 100,000 signatures – more than meeting the 87 thousand needed to qualify. A similar measure was defeated in Oregon in 2002, and recent years have seen the defeat of labeling efforts in both California and Washington state. Dialynn Dwyer has more.
