Research Details Deluge of Spending by Opponents of GMO Labeling

CORNUCOPIA, WIS - For the third election cycle in a row, biotech corporations and large agribusinesses narrowly defeated statewide citizen initiatives that would have mandated the labeling of genetically engineered (GE) ingredients on food packages. This time the electoral showdowns took place in Oregon, where it was narrowly defeated, and Colorado where the loss was decisive after labeling backers chose to focus their resources on Oregon.

$100 million to defeat labeling in two states... One wonders if doing the actual labeling would have cost anywhere near that amount of money.
