Latest Road to Rural Prosperity with OKFB's Steve Thompson on the Budget and Agriculture Wins in the LegislatureFri, 15 May 2020 13:59:47 CDT
In the latest Episode of our Road to Rural Prosperity, Steve Thompson of Oklahoma Farm Bureau Talks State Budget and More Legislative Efforts.
Thompson said numerous agricultural policy issues were discussed by lawmakers. Among the issues were food safety laws connected with farmers selling direct to consumers through farmerís markets, changes in hemp regulations, and an updated definition of what constitutes meat. The largest concern is where we will be at this time next year, Thompson said, as the reserve fund is running low.
The unusual budget maneuvering was just another of the strange things one can attribute to the Covid-19 shutdown.
