I-522

October 25, 2013

Voters will be asked to decide whether the food they purchase should carry a label if it was manufactured with genetically modified ingredients. The battle over I-522 is the most expensive in this election cycle and broke the record set by the battle over privatizing the state's liquor market. Northwest Now host Tom Layson travels to Sumner and Carnation to speak with two food producers on opposite sides of the issue. The program's studio segment will features a discussion between advocates on both sides, and the chair of the biology department at the University of Washington who has taken a careful look at the science behind GMOs.

Program will be available after broadcast.
