GE Labeling Initiative Filed in Washington State

Two months after the defeat of California’s Proposition 37, Washington State is ready to take up the battle again with their proposal of Initiative I-522.
If the signatures receive validation from the Washington Secretary of State office, I-522 will go to the legislature, which can (1) pass the Initiative (2) do nothing, which sends it to the ballot, or (3) pass an alternative, in which case both versions go on the ballot.

Ronnie Cummins, director of Organic Consumers Association, shares his opinion regarding the necessity of “truth and transparency in the form of mandatory GMO labeling laws” in his article recently published in the Nation of Change.
