ICYMI- Tom Buchanan Talks Grassroots Policy Development with Ron Hays

ICYMI- Tom Buchanan Talks Grassroots Policy Development with Ron Hays
On Saturday morning, the President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Tom Buchanan, joined Ron Hays during his "In the Field" segment as seen on KWTV, News9 in Oklahoma City. Earlier this fall county Farm Bureau Chapters developed resolutions to be sent to the state organization's resolution committee. This year 40 members served in the process in reviewing about 200 resolutions during a two-day meeting October 21-22 in Norman.

On a national level, major issues include the importance of crop insurance, the 'Water of the US' (WOTUS) proposal from the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers. With the ongoing drought, one reoccurring theme was the importance of federal crop insurance. Buchanan said members expressed their need for the implementation of the Actual Production History (APH) adjustment.

State level amendments addressed private property rights, wind power development, water and the right to farm.

The Resolutions Committee will present all of these amendments to members at the Oklahoma Farm Bureau's Annual Meeting being held November 13-15 in Tulsa. Buchanan said the whole delegate body will have the opportunity to vote on all proposed resolutions. With a wide range of view points this leads into in depth discussion and that's creates an environment for an excellent policy debate.
