Washington won’t be the only state labeling GE foods. Connecticut, Maine and Alaska have passed labeling laws and dozens of other states are considering identical proposals. Many Washington farmers support labeling because they know that growing GMO crops destroys healthy soil, and they sell crops to overseas markets that either require labels on GMO crops, or have banned them completely.
I-522 requires no costly testing for GE ingredients. No burdensome government oversight is necessary. The system is inherently designed to protect small grocers and retailers while providing consumers with the right to know what’s in their food without increasing grocery costs.
