Oklahoma Grain and Stocker Producers Plan Legislative Forum in EnidSun, 08 Jan 2012 13:40:09 CST
The Oklahoma Grain and Stocker Producers welcomes everyone to a legislative meet-and-greet at the Garfield County Fairgrounds in Enid on Friday, January 13.
Legislative officials invited to participate include staff from each member of the Oklahoma legislative delegation as well as leaders of the Oklahoma Senate and House of Representatives and State Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese. Elected officials and staff will provide updates on national and state issues, including the new farm bill, the state budget situation, wildlife management efforts and more, in addition to visiting one-on-one with constituents.
The event will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, January 13, in the conference room on the northeast corner of the Chisholm Trail Expo Center, 111 W Purdue Ave., in Enid.
"This is an opportunity to get updated on state and national political events and hear about something besides the Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses," says current OGSP President David Von Tungeln, of El Reno. "We encourage everyone to stop in during the show, ask questions and present their concerns to our elected officials."
Von Tungeln plans to lead a delegation of OG&SP directors to Washington D.C. for legislative visits in nation's capital Feb. 26-29. "We're always interested in hearing about what is on producers' minds as we make plans for our annual trip to D.C.," Von Tungeln adds.
The Oklahoma Grain and Stocker Producers organization was founded nearly 20 years ago to promote trade, research, agricultural diversification and private property rights on behalf of the state's grain and stocker cattle producers. The group hosts various educational events around the state and travels to Washington D.C. each year to meet directly with elected officials.
