Upon reading the text of Initiative 522, I am still almost as confused as I was after listening to the opposing TV ads. However, I do believe the supporters are closer to the truth than the opponents.

Why has the “no” campaign poured in three times the amount of money as the “yes” campaign? It seems that certain large corporations with very deep pockets, which also handle or promote GMO products, do not want their secrets revealed. What are they hiding? Let’s find out.

I have heard it mentioned that this “law” is flawed, is imperfect. That sounds like many laws that we already have. So we can improve it in a future legislative session. At least, this is a step in the right direction now. We have the right to know what we’re putting into our bodies. We deserve no less.
