The OACC applauds the U.S. Senate and Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe and Sen. James Lankford on the passage of the S. 764 GMO Food Labeling Act. We thank the senators for their support in passing the bill.
Passing this law on the floor of the United States Senate is vital for farmers, ranchers, consumers and manufacturers. It creates a uniform national food disclosure for foods containing biotechnology.
The bill’s passage will ensure consumers have access to information about the food they eat. It will allow farmers to continue to embrace technology and grow a safe and affordable food supply.
All attention turns to the U.S. House of Representatives. We look forward to working with our delegation to have the same action in their respective Chamber.
