Boise--Idaho Farm Bureau Vice President Mark Trupp called the 2014 State Resolution Committee to order this morning at 10:05.

"We had a lot of discussion about what this group does," Trupp told the group this morning, "In the end there were a few changes, but its been enlightening and a great lesson in grass root politics."
