Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan Praises Final Passage of GMO Labeling Bill

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 15:40:57 CDT

Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan Praises Final Passage of GMO Labeling Bill The U.S. House today gave final approval to S. 764, which creates a national standard for disclosure of genetically modified food ingredients. Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan issued the following statement in response.



"For decades, genetically modified crops have helped farmers produce an abundance of high-quality and affordable food, while also decreasing agriculture's impact on the environment. A consistent national labeling standard not only allows farmers to continue embracing GMO technology but also gives consumers access to information about their food.



"Although Oklahoma Farm Bureau policy does not support a mandatory label, individual state labeling laws would only confuse consumers and increase food prices. This legislation, which prevents a patchwork of state-by-state labeling laws, benefits farmers, businesses, consumers and the overall American economy.



"We appreciate the support of Oklahoma Reps. Tom Cole, Frank Lucas, Markwayne Mullin and Steve Russell, as well as Sens. Jim Inhofe and James Lankford, and look forward to President Obama's approval."
