    California’s Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act will be on November’s ballot as Proposition 37, according to proposition numbers released late yesterday by the California Secretary of State’s office. The Right to Know measure calls for labeling genetically engineered foods and, if passed, would be the first law in the United States requiring labeling of a wide range of genetically engineered foods. “Prop 37 is about our fundamental right to know what’s in the food we eat and feed our children,” said Stacy Malkan, a spokesperson for the California Right to Know campaign. “Given the broad support in the...

    Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) was arrested in June at a Minnesota airport by a plainclothes police officer investigating lewd conduct complaints in a men’s public restroom, according to an arrest report obtained by Roll Call Monday afternoon. Craig’s arrest occurred just after noon on June 11 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. On Aug. 8, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in the Hennepin County District Court.

    The United States has no business accommodating a permanent underclass of illegal workers, whose ranks have grown to at least 6 million. Problem is, the reform plan with the most momentum in D.C. would make an untenable situation worse. The flawed AgJobs bill, first introduced in 2003, would cover no more than 10 percent of the illegal labor force. And it would grant those workers de facto amnesty, moving them ahead of legal immigrants who've obeyed the law in their quest to reach America. It would mock the orderly process of naturalization, when there are alternatives -- including other guest-worker...

    <p>WASHINGTON - House and Senate lawmakers rallied yesterday behind legislation that would legalize as many as 500,000 illegal immigrants employed as farmworkers, but the Bush administration has yet to endorse the measure.</p> <p>Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, and Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., the bill's chief sponsors, are urgently working to get the measure onto the Senate floor before the end of the year. They are trying for support from at least 60 senators. So far, the bill has attracted 54 sponsors from both parties.</p>
