Policy Development Information

 
Farm Bureau’s strength lies in our grassroots membership. Our policy development process engages Farm Bureau members in surfacing ideas that matter for preserving, promoting and protecting agriculture. We seek actionable policy positions which identify the results members want to see accomplished.


Election Information


A new website by the American Farm Bureau offers farmers and ranchers critical information on the 2016 Presidential candidates. The website serves three key purposes: news going on related to the campaign, issue briefs on where Farm Bureau stands and providing access for visitors to their bio, their official campaign site and any information to get more information. Helping farmers and ranchers become informed and engaged during the upcoming election is vital, and a unified voice can prove powerful during the election.


Government Resources

Find resources and information about nationwide and state level government resources, general election information, important election dates and candidate information.

Farm Bureau Issues

State
 

  • Buffers
    As state agencies impose land-use control through buffers, landowners need to understand their responsibilities.

  • Agricultural Property Taxes
    Ag property taxes continue to challenge farmers and ag property owners. Farm Bureau finds solutions and pursues options to address this priority.

National
 

  • Biotechnology
    Farm Bureau protects farmers’ ability to use biotech plant varieties and innovative technologies with legislation and regulations based on science, not socioeconomic criteria.

  • Endangered Species Act
    The Endangered Species Act must be modernized to protect endangered species and private property rights.

  • Waters of the U.S.
    Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers finalized a rule that significantly expands “waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act. Farm Bureau wants EPA to withdraw this regulation and propose a new rule that reflects the limitations imposed by Congress and the Supreme Court and the views formally offered by the states.
