Denver, CO—Another GMO labeling ballot initiative will be put to a popular vote, thanks to a successful signature campaign in Colorado. Supporters of Proposition 105 to label genetically modified foods gathered almost 125,000 valid signatures, almost 40,000 more than required, and submitted them to the Colorado Secretary of State.
