In California last year Prop 37 was defeated. It would have required food containing GMOs to be labeled. Yes, it is possible to buy an election. The big food corps outspent the little guys 5 to 1.
One of the claims of the ad campaign was that the GMO labeling would be too complicated for the average consumer to understand. Another was that the unnecessary labeling would cost the average consumer $400 more in grocery bills per year.
The real cost would be for all the food corporations that would no longer be able to call their products “natural” if they contained GMOs.
