Why support 33? The negatives outweigh the positives. And, it's another ballot proposition pushed by a single special interest group.

It's weird that every "Chamber" action always goes against Consumer's rights. Why is that? Aren't Chambers made up of human beings? Proposition 37 is a well-written ballot initiative which specifically addresses the 8 genetically-engineered foods being sold or used as ingredients in California (by law, each initiative can only address ONE state code, which is why meat, dairy, prepared foods and alcohol are not included). In 2004, when Congress approved the Food Allergen Labeling Act, the same companies opposing this made the same wild arguments, yet prices remained stable, litigation did not increase and consumers had more knowledge with which to make their purchasing decisions. That is how a free market economy is supposed to operate: full transparency. YES on 37!
