Helping You Investigate State Question 777

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 11:10:24 CDT

Helping You Investigate State Question 777 If you want to learn more about State Question 777, we have several resources that you can go and investigate. To begin with, we would suggest you go and read the actual State Question from the official State of Oklahoma website- click here for the ballot language for 777. The State Legislature passed underlying legislation in spring of 2015 to send the Right to Farm amendment to a vote of the people by votes of 90 to 6 in the State House and 39 to 6 in the State Senate.


After the vote, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays sat down with one of the lead authors of the underlying bill, State Representative Scott Biggs, to discuss the measure- click here to review that story and their conversation.


Two months out from the November election- RON sat down with Biggs again and got an updated take from the author of the State Question- click here for that story and a chance to hear his latest thoughts on 777.


There is one PAC that is registered with the State of Oklahoma that is raising money with the intent of supporting the State Question- Oklahoma Farmers Care. Click here for their website.

There are two PACs registered with the State of Oklahoma opposed to the State Question, Click on their names to jump to their respective websites- the Oklahoma Stewardship Council and Oklahomans for Food, Farm and Families. After the Stewardship Council was formed, Hays talked with former Attorney General Drew Edmondson about the efforts to organize a "NO" vote on the measure- click here for that story from November of 2015.


More recently, Ron Hays talked with Edmondson at one of the early fall meetings that was designed to organize support against 777- click here for that story.


A resource that has been released is from Oklahoma State University- Dr. Shannon Ferrell and Dr. Larry Sanders have written a Fact Sheet on State Question 777- click here to go and read their analysis. We also did an interview with Dr. Ferrell about what he sees in the State Question- click here to listen to that conversation.


Rogers State University's TV Department hosted a conversation about State Question 777 with Roy Lee Lindsay and Bud Scott- you can watch that full program by clicking on the PLAY button in the video box below.
