The race is on to define Proposition 37, the ballot initiative that would require labels for most genetically modified foods in California.

As with ballot initiatives in other states, the anti-labelers are getting a major boost from agricultural industry groups that are worried the labels will scare consumers away from perfectly safe products. Prop 37 opponents have raised $25 million from agribusiness giants, with much of that fundraising coming in the past couple of weeks.
