Another GMO Labeling Effort Underway

Due to the failure of the Washington state legislature to advance a GMO labeling bill this year - an initiative to require the labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms has been launched in the state. The effort - called I-522 - is reportedly very similar to Prop 37 in California. Prop 37 would require GMO labels on certain foods and beverages. It will be on the state ballot in November. Those supporting the I-522 initiative will need to collect about 250-thousand signatures by year end to force the state legislature to reconsider the issue of GMO labeling. If the Washington state legislature does not act - the initiative would go to the voters next November.
