Private property rights and healthcare priorities for Missouri Farm Bureau

Missouri Farm Bureau delegates finalized their policy priorities for 2023 during this week’s annual meeting.

Missouri Farm Bureau members took a stance on eminent domain, supporting the adoption of an Ag Impact Mitigation Agreement program. Director of State and Local Legislative Affairs Ben Travlos says this will be a priority in the upcoming state legislative session.

“Making sure the protections farmers, ranchers and landowners need are in place moving forward, whenever there are instances on eminent domain on the table.”

Delegates also support health plan legislation and investments in rural roads.

“The state legislature will have the opportunity to work with $6 billion in state and federal infrastructure funding in the upcoming session.”

Delegates also set priorities for the upcoming farm bill. Delegates adopted policy to adjust planting dates for crop insurance, are supportive of additional safety net programs for livestock producers and adopting a policy on the reference price for rice in the Price Loss Coverage program.
