OLYMPIA, Wash. – Washington State’s attorney general wants a food producer trade group to pay for breaking the law.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson is suing the Grocery Manufacturers Association.
He wants them to pay up for breaking state campaign laws when they donated $11 million to the ‘No on I-522’ campaign.
Voters defeated the measure in November, which would have required labeling genetically-modified foods.
Even though the GMA published those names after the election, Ferguson thinks they broke the law on purpose.
A judge is expected to decide the case next year.
