Write a better bill next time!

Yes, the large campaign against Prop 37 certainly was a big factor in its defeat, but also involved was the poorly-written bill. My opinion about Prop 37 was formed long before either side started their dis-information campaigns. It was formed when I read the wording of the actual bill. The special exclusions, the fact that it tried to slip in a provision not related to GMO and the wording that would have inevitably resulted in large numbers of baseless lawsuits are what swayed me. Any future attempt at forcing GMO labeling should start with a well-written bill.
