AbstractA petition has been filed that requires a public vote in Oregon. The issue to be decided is whether or not to attach labels stating “Genetically Engineered” on surfaces or outside packaging of genetically-engineered foods sold or distributed in or from Oregon. A list of the products that would be affected is extensive. A copy of Measure No. 27 in its original form is attached for your perusal. Your assignment is to produce and perform a public service radio announcement either opposing or supporting Measure 27. You will be assigned into one of the four interested groups listed below. Your goal is to sway voters to vote in support of your position. After the performance of your announcement, you should also be ready, willing, and able to argue your position using information from your groups attached literature. First, individually read the attached information produced by your group and then rejoin your partners to put together your radio announcement and arguments supporting your groups position.
