OKFB state resolutions committee reviews grassroots policy proposals for 2022

Thu, 21 Oct 2021 11:16:08 CDT

OKFB state resolutions committee reviews grassroots policy proposals for 2022 Oklahoma Farm Bureau members from across the state gathered Oct. 19-20 in Oklahoma City to review, discuss and amend proposed policies to the organization’s grassroots 2022 policy book.

Farmers and ranchers from all 77 county organizations submitted policy resolutions, which were then sorted, amended and combined by the more than 40 members serving on the state resolutions committee. Policy proposals approved by the committee will move on to the full OKFB delegate body at the organization’s annual meeting Nov. 5-7.

“This grassroots process is one of the fundamental parts of Farm Bureau,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “There used to be a lot of grassroots organizations around the state, but there are not many left. Farm Bureau is proud to complete the grassroots work of our members.”

One of the top issues farmers and ranchers discussed was the rapid expansion of the medical marijuana industry. The grassroots membership voiced their concerns with the industry’s impact on private property rights, rural electric and water capacities, timely pesticide and fertilizer application, and much more.

Members also voted on policy regarding the meat packing industry to encourage more competition and increased expansion of private meat packing capacity.

Private property rights, government efficiencies and H-2A worker concerns were also on the top OKFB members’ minds.

The resolutions passed through the committee will be heard by the full delegate body and will help direct the advocacy efforts the organization on behalf of its members.

For more information about the grassroots policy making process, contact the OKFB public policy department at (405) 523-2300.
