About Prop. 37

Proposition 37 would ban the sale of tens of thousands of perfectly-safe,
common grocery products only in California unless they are specially
repackaged, relabeled or remade with higher cost ingredients. Prop. 37 is not
a simple labeling measure. It will increase grocery bills for California
families by up to $400 a year, add more government bureaucracy and taxpayer
costs, will create a new way for trial lawyers to file shakedown lawsuits, and
includes loopholes and exemptions which make no sense. All of this without
providing any health or safety benefits. That's why Prop. 37 is opposed by a
broad coalition of family farmers, scientists, doctors, business, labor,
taxpayers and consumers.
