Stockton Farmers Push For Ballot Initiative

A pair of farmers is pushing for a ballot initiative in California to force foreign growers who sell produce in
the state to follow California´s strict environmental regulations.

The farmers are both from the state´s Central Valley. They´re upset over depressed
crop prices.

They want to get the initiative on the November 2003 ballot, despite concerns that such a measure may be illegal and stifle trade.
