Utah Farm Bureau members recently spent time on Utah's Capitol Hill, visiting with State lawmakers on issues that were on the minds of farmers and ranchers throughout Utah. It was a busy time to visit with lawmakers, during the middle of the legislative session. In addition to briefings about current legislative proposals, Utah Farm Bureau members were also able to take time to visit with lawmakers after while they were on the legislative floor.
Farm Bureau members visited on issues such as eminent domain, predator control, water quality, tax reform, and more. Lawmakers also presented on issues they were working on, and how farmers and ranchers can get involved in the political process.
In addition to the Capitol visits, Utah Farm Bureau hosted several of the Republican candidates for governor, to understand their platforms and what role agriculture plays. In addition to these photos below, there are additional photos on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/UtahFarmBureau.
