Prop 37 Goes Before Eureka Council
Way down towards the end of this article on the next Eureka City Council meeting it's mentioned that a report on Prop 37- the genetically modified foods labeling initiative- will be presented.
This shouldn't be city business. At least supporting or not supporting the initiative shouldn't be, if that's the intent. First of all, it doesn't have any direct relation to city business. Second, I'd argue the city council shouldn't be publicly taking a position on any initiative when the people living in the city might not feel the same way.
It will be interesting to see what comes of this. Will the council screw up and take a position on Prop 37 as the Board of Supervisors did?
Addendum: Here's an L.A. Times article with interesting info on Prop 37, including a look at its major proponents and opponents.
