Rodd Moesel Pleased with Grassroots Turnout at Oklahoma Farm Bureau Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City

Tue, 19 Feb 2019 05:32:17 CST

Rodd Moesel Pleased with Grassroots Turnout at Oklahoma Farm Bureau Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City Oklahoma Farm Bureau County Leaders from across the state have gathered at the 2019 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City. The opening afternoon was a lineup of the movers and shakers in state government, as speakers included the Governor, the Lt. Governor, the State Commissioner of Ag, the Insurance Commissioner and the House and Senate Leaders from both sides of the political aisle.

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel between speakers on Monday- and they discussed the priorities of the general farm organization as the 2019 Session of the State Legislation is now taking shape after a couple of weeks are now behind us.

Moesel mentioned one bill to the Farm Bureau Leaders gathered as one that the group is opposing as it is being considered by lawmakers here in 2019- a move to allow municipalities to assess ad valorem taxes. Moesel says that Legislative Leaders and the Governor have expressed support for the measure- so defeating it will be a heavy lift, but Ag Groups are raising concerns about the measure with lawmakers in the early days of the Legislative Session.

After we talked with the Farm Bureau President, a panel that was made up of the State Legislative Leadership was held- and the Oklahoma Farm Bureau communications team streamed it live on Facebook- click here for the link to seeing that video.

You can hear Moesel and Hays talk about that measure and about the Leadership Conference by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
