Oklahoma Farm Bureau Adds Their Voice to the Call for Passage of the Roberts- Stabenow GMO Labeling Bill

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 18:10:27 CDT

Oklahoma Farm Bureau Adds Their Voice to the Call for Passage of the Roberts- Stabenow GMO Labeling Bill Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan issued the following statement in support of U.S. Senate proposed legislation to create a uniform, national standard for GMO labeling.

“Genetically modified crops have allowed farmers to significantly increase the quality of food and fiber they produce, all while using less land and fewer pesticides. This benefit is directly passed onto consumers, who enjoy the safest and most affordable food supply to date.

“Across the country, individual states have passed mandatory GMO labeling laws, with Vermont being the first. The Senate’s proposed legislation will preempt all state GMO labeling laws, preventing a patchwork of state-by-state laws.

“Although the legislation makes GMO labeling mandatory, we believe a uniform, national standard is vital to avoid harming interstate commerce, confusing consumers and driving up food costs.

“We encourage Oklahoma Sens. Jim Inhofe and James Lankford to support this legislation, and look forward to its passage on the Senate floor.”
