Questions & Answers regarding I 522 and Label Genentically Engineered Foods #2

3. How much money do you expect to raise? Although we will never be able to match the many millions of dollars we anticipate big agribusiness will pour into Washington to defeat this measure, we believe we will enjoy significant financial support from citizens across the state and that this support will enable us to raise the resources we need to run a competitive campaign.   4. What groups have endorsed I-522? Our support is diverse and widespread across the state. Community groups, environmental organizations, businesses, Washington Nurses Association and Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Republicans and Democrats, moms and dads, fishing families, and farmers have come together in support of I-522. We are also pleased to have the support of businesses like PCC Natural Markets, Marlene’s Market, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, Nature’s Path, Ben & Jerry’s, Clif Bar, Amy’s Kitchen, and Whole Foods, which recently announced that it will require the labeling of genetically modified food in its stores within five years.
