Each campaign finance filing in the fight over whether some foods in Colorado should sport a label about genetically modified ingredients shows an increasingly lopsided race. In a two week period in September the committee working to get the measure passed raised about $120,000. Those opposed raised $8.1 million.
If you were at work and a disaster occurred, would you know what to do? According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, most people do not. The agency says 70 percent of Americans haven't participated in an emergency drill or exercise, besides a fire drill, at their office, school or home for the past two years. Their study also states 50 percent of Americans don't have an adequate emergency plan.
Along with state and local officials, FEMA is hoping to change that during a National Day of Action.
