Staying in Tune With Our Legislature
Once each year a group of 160 men and women assemble for a special duty in Tallahassee. What they do affects all of us.
Their collective assembly, the Florida Legislature, has the primary task of establishing a budget for state government. But in the process they address a range of policy issues.
Many of those issues directly affect farmers and ranchers. That is why Florida Farm Bureau members visited the state Capitol in March.
Our members held discussions with lawmakers and executive agency officials over the course of two days as part of their grassroots contact with legislators. They let them know how specific policies affect their livelihoods and the future of their families.
