State Resolutions Committee Meets in Boise
Boise--The annual State resolution meeting met in Boise on Thursday with potential resolutions from Idaho Farm Bureau's five districts.

"This is how the policy book is written," said Idaho Farm Bureau President Frank Priestley. "It's a process that gives our members a voice in grass root politics."

Issues of statewide and national importance are fleshed out and then discussed by counties over the summer followed by the final State resolution meeting in the fall and the annual meeting in December. Recommendations on national issues are adopted and forwarded to the American Farm Bureau Federation for consideration.
