Propostion 37 Draws Big Dollars For and Against

Both Sides in the battle over proposition 37 that will require labeling of some genetically modified foods sold in California are spending money to gain votes.   After a barrage of advertising from the No on 37 group, the Yes on 37 campaign   ramped up an extensive television ad campaign that started Friday October 26.  Proponents of Proposition 37, like Michael Funk Chairman and Co-Founder of U-N-F-I which supplies Whole Foods and other grocery markets says California can take the leadership on labeling of GMO’s.
