Schwarzenegger vetos clone labeling bill
An industry group, Biotechnology Industry Organization, applauded the move:
to a more healthful and high-quality food supply. The biotechnology industry applauds Governor Schwarzenegger for saying "no" to unnecessary and anti-biotechnology labeling requirements that would have been misleading for California consumers and placed California ranchers and livestock producers at a competitive disadvantage.
More importantly, by vetoing Senate Bill 63, Governor Schwarzenegger recognized the vast scientific research that has concluded that meat and milk products from animal clones and their offspring are as safe as conventionally-derived foods and therefore do not require any additional labeling, which can potentially mislead consumers.
