Right to Farm Nay Sayers Applaud the Outcome, While Proponents Left Feeling Vulnerable

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 23:18:37 CST

Right to Farm Nay Sayers Applaud the Outcome, While Proponents Left Feeling Vulnerable Despite the concerted efforts of the Oklahoma agricultural community, the voters of Oklahoma ultimately chose not amend the state’s constitution with a measure to protect the rights of farmers and ranchers from outside influences. The ballot initiative State Question 777 - Right to Farm failed to pass this Election Day. Associate Farm Director Carson Horn caught up with a leader of the NO on 777 camp, Bud Scott, for his reaction.

“We feel like Oklahomans took the time to A: come out and vote in tremendous numbers and B: to research the issue,” Scott said. “And ultimately they agreed with us that this was an unnecessary ballot initiative and that we have better ways of protecting our farmers and ranchers here in Oklahoma.”

As he stated in a previous interview, Scott asserts that now that the proposed question has been laid to rest, everything will simply stay the same. Meanwhile, those on the YES side say, we as a state have now left our farmers vulnerable to the interference of outside interest groups.

“It’s exactly like it was,” Scott said. “Oklahoma farmers and ranchers are still one of the most friendly agricultural states in the US. We’ll continue to work to support them and sound policy measures.”
