PLEASE CONSIDER VOTING NO ON PROP 37

Please note that I am not associated with this organization, and I have not contributed money to their campaign.  However, I do agree with the graphic they probided below – it appears that although there were “good intentions” to make California Consumers more aware about Genetically Engineered / Enhanced Foods we eat.

This Proposition 37 just misses the mark and appears to open a flood gate for “slip-n-fall” Attorneys to make $Millions with lawsuits!  That will ONLY benefit “slip-n-fall” Attorneys and achieve nothing for us consumers except for higher food prices!

Prop 37 is not a simple measure. It will result in shakedown lawsuits, it exempts huge categories of foods, and it will increase bureaucracy, red tape and taxpayer costs – without providing any health or safety benefits.

Description

Proposition 37, an initiative aimed for California’s November 2012 ballot, would:

-Not hold imported foods to the same labeling standards that California farmers are held to, making it seem like a healthier option to buy unlabeled, imported foods. Taxpayers, grocers and consumers would be burdened with the cost if the California government was to consistently and properly regulate imports.

-This
would allow attorneys to bring lawsuits against grocers, farmers and retailers without having proof of a violation – which in turn would cost those local farmers thousands in legal fees.

-Labeling would not apply to alcohol, meat, poultry or dairy nor would restaurants be required to identify GMO foods on their menus.

Find out why a growing coalition of family farmers, grocers, food companies, small businesses and others has come together to oppose this measure.
