Illinois Farm Bureau will hold eight meetings across the state to help farmers better understand the proposed rule defining “waters of the U.S.”
Lauren Lurkins, director of natural and environmental resources, and Adam Nielsen, director of national legislation and policy development, will provide an overview of the 370-page proposal and answer questions.
“This is just another phase in our strategy to educate our membership about the impact this proposed rule would have on their individual operations,” Lurkins said. “We’ve been promoting our position through FarmWeek, the radio and a bunch of different avenues, but there’s nothing that can replace face-to-face discussion with our individual members.”
The meetings will be held the week of Aug. 4. Most are open to all Farm Bureau members regardless of their county residence, but seating could be limited. Reservations are required.
Scheduled meetings include:
