Even the Left-leaning Ventura County Star newspaper says No on California Proposition 37.
Proposition 37 is a good example of something that doesn’t belong on the ballot. It asks voters to pass a state law about labeling foods with ingredients from genetically modified crops.
Let’s get real: Only a relative handful of voters are in a position to make an informed decision on such a complicated, technical subject. For that reason and more, The Star recommends voting no on Proposition 37 in the Nov. 6 election. (…)
Supporters of Proposition 37 claim it would give consumers more information about what they eat and would foster transparency and trust in the food system. We think they’re mistaken on both counts. Such a law would create mistrust and confusion about the foods that Californians eat.
The Star recommends a no vote on Proposition 37.
Prop. 37 is a bad law, supported by special interests that plan to benefit financially in the name of food labeling disclosure. It is a SHAM.
Vote NO on California Proposition 37.
