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. Paid for by No on 37: Coalition Against the Deceptive Food Labeling Scheme, sponsored by Farmers, Food Producers, and Grocers. Major funding by Monsanto Company, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and more than 40 food company members.
