Maybe, but you know that Monsanto can and will fight this as they in California. For now it's good to read that good guys are ahead. Maybe the California campaign worked as a heads up for other states, I hope so.

If Monsanto believes that it's GMO is good for Farmers and the people! Monsanto should be asking that all it's corm should be labeled! So why is Monsanto fighting labeling?

Noted. I am hopeful, too. Many tactics have been learned by past failures and it's time for some success. I see a great domino effect about to happen, and will do any small part I can to help with this--we all should. Spread the word.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps is sponsoring a series of cars with fish shapes which will travel from DC to Washington asking "is there something fishy in your food?" Great way to get some notice. Read about it:
