OACC Applauds Sen. Inhofe and Sen. Lankford for Their Support of GMO Labeling CompromiseThu, 30 Jun 2016 16:56:21 CDT
The OACC applauded Sen. Inhofe and Sen. Lankford on their procedural votes for GMO labeling, issuing the following statement this afternoon.
We thank the senators for their leadership and support to advance the GMO labeling bill.
We understand the GMO labeling bill has a long way to go to circumvent the Vermont law, but we think it is vitally important for consumers to understand that the patchwork of GMO labeling laws is an issue that would be detrimental to their pocketbook and to our livelihood. Congress taking swift action is important for consumers, farmers, ranchers and those involved in American agriculture.
We believe another procedural vote will happen next week as well as the vote on the substantive language of the bill.
