Sen. Jim Inhofe Tours Oklahoma to Spread His Message of Support for State Question 777

Sen. Jim Inhofe Tours Oklahoma to Spread His Message of Support for State Question 777 In support of Oklahoma agriculture, Sen. Jim Inhofe is touring the state this week to promote State Question 777 - Right to Farm. The senator took the opportunity to meet with Associate Farm Director Carson Horn, for the chance to broadcast his message of support to the statewide audience of Radio Oklahoma Network.

“I have never done this in the 22 years I’ve been in the United States Senate - gotten involved in state questions,” Sen. Inhofe said. “But the reason I am this time is I chair a committee in the United States Senate called the Environment & Public Works Committee and there is where they have all these liberal outside interests trying to get in there and push the states aside and get control. What they couldn’t do in my committee, they’re trying to do state by state.”

Sen. Inhofe explained that the opposition is well-funded by outside special interest groups that seem to be twisting the language of the proposed question in an attempt to confuse voters on the actual impact and important protection SQ-777 would entail.
“I was shocked by some of the billboards…talking about things like water issues,” Sen Inhofe said. “There is no water issue in this. They’re nothing but lies on the billboards but it scares me to death.”

Although, there is no issues aside from protecting the rights of farmers in this legislation, environmental, business or otherwise - Inhofe says there will be if the question fails, as it will allow outside influences the ability to weigh in on policy matters in Oklahoma. In the senator’s opinion, there is only one option for voters.

“You’ve got to support 777,” Sen. Inhofe said. “You’re going to have outsiders coming into Oklahoma and determining what our policies should be. Farming is a competitive industry; a lot of farmers aren’t making it and one thing they can’t afford is to have outsiders dictating their policies.

“Let’s support our farmers, let’s do it right and let’s vote yes on 777.”
