Prop 105 debate Saturday in Fort Collins

Kefalas

State Sen. John Kefalas is hosting a meeting Saturday in Fort Collins, featuring discussions on measures that will appear on the November ballot – among them is Proposition 105, which aims to mandate the labeling of Colorado foods containing GMOs.

The event is set for 10 a.m. to noon, taking place at the Old Town Library, 201 Peterson St.

All public and media are invited.

In regards to Prop 105, Colorado Corn communications director Eric Brown will be speaking on behalf of the organization, and also for the No On Proposition 105 Coalition. The No On Proposition 105 Coalition – made up of hundreds of individuals and ag and food organizations, including Colorado Corn, and others – has long stressed that Prop 105, with its arbitrary and unfair exemptions for two-thirds of foods, would only confuse consumers more about their choices, rather than inform them, increase food prices, and put certain producers at a disadvantage.
