Washington initiative on genetically modified food looms









OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Companies would be required to label genetically modified food under an initiative sponsors are submitting Thursday in Olympia.






California voters rejected a similar proposal last year.






Opponents say GMO labeling would raise prices and hurt farmers.






Supporters have health concerns about genetic material inserted into foods and say consumers should have a choice.
