Voters to decide Colorado GMO labelling

Voters from the US state of Colorado will decide this autumn if their state should require mandatory labels for foods that contain ingredients from genetically modified crops. The Colorado Secretary of State has stated that labelling advocates had gathered more than enough valid signatures to put the issue on the November 4th ballot. Earlier this month, the Right to Know Colorado Campaign submitted 171,387 signatures to state officials in support of the initiative, nearly double the total required to get the measure on the ballot. The initiative, known as Proposition 105, calls on the state's Department of Public Health and Environment to impose a labelling regime by July 2016, requiring labelling of most raw and packaged foods that contain GM ingredients. It would exempt alcohol and products made from animals that eat GM feed. A similar measure is also up for consideration in the state of Oregon.
