Oklahoma Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Right to Farm Amendment
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Oklahoma’s Right to Farm Amendment, State Question 777, and will allow the measure to stay on the ballot for the November 8 election.
“Today, Oklahoma’s family farmers have scored a big win against out of state special interests who are trying to decimate Oklahoma’s economy and our way of life,” said Tom Buchanan, President of Oklahoma Farm Bureau. “Now is the time to stand up, and defend hard-working family farmers and ranchers that do so much for us.”
In its ruling, the Supreme Court let stand a previous decision by an Oklahoma County District Judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
State Question 777 is supported by dozens of groups made up of Oklahoma family farmers and the state’s leading agriculture organizations.
