Take Action! Support Clean Water & Clear Rules
Today marks an important time for WOTUS. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers proposed a Clean Water Rule that gives farmers the clarity we asked for. This rule ends years of uncertainty over where federal jurisdiction begins and ends. The proposed Clean Water Rule was published to the Federal Register today, February 14, 2019, after weeks of delay caused by the partial government shutdown. Publication of the Clean Water Rule officially starts a 60-day comment period. Now is the time to show our support for the new Clean Water Rule. We cannot let the voice of the opposition drown out our voice.

Help us Advocate for Local Agriculture
Here's something you already know, every day, politicians and regulators make decisions that impact the way you farm. But here's something you may have overlooked, politics have changed a lot! Don't feel discouraged. You can take back your influence in Washington, Springfield, and even your own backyard with Farm Bureau's FB ACT program.
FB ACT (Farm Bureau Agricultural Contact Team) started as a group of men and women who had an interest in the legislative process. That used to work. Today, your voice can easily be drowned out by others speaking out against you.
When you join FB ACT, we ask that you vote and respond to action requests by emailing or calling your elected officials on key agricultural issues.
