Washington State Voters Reject Labeling of GMO Foods
"The vote was 54.8% opposed to labeling and 45.2% in favor of it."
"The initiative was the most expensive in state history, though it was largely fought by out-of-state interests."
"The No on 522 campaign set a record for fundraising, bringing in $22 million in donations according to The Seattle Times. Just $550 came from Washington residents, according to the newspaper. The top five contributors were the Grocery Manufacturers Association, Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer, Dow AgroSciences and Bayer CropScience."
