Three Strikes Revision, Food Labeling Join November Ballot Measures
Two new voter initiatives qualified for the November ballot on Monday.
The first would modify California's three strikes law to eliminate life sentencing when the third felony is not a serious or violent crime. The measure was co-authored by Stanford law professor David Mills, who has so far put up more than $800,000 for the campaign. Billionaire George Soros made a $500,000 donation earlier this year.
The second initiative would require labeling on genetically engineered foods. Its major supporters include Dr. Joseph Mercola, a doctor and bestselling author who has so far contributed more than $500,000, and Nature's Path, a company that makes organic breakfast cereals.
The two initiatives bring the total ballot measures for November to eight. The others are:
