Logan County Farm Bureau members attended the Kentucky Farm Bureau Legislative Drive-In on Feb. 5 in Frankfort. This event allowed county Farm Bureau leaders from across the state to visit directly with state senators and representatives at the state capitol.

Legislators were presented a basket of Kentucky grown agricultural products to celebrate the safest most affordable food in the world.

The Logan County delegation met with State Senator Whitney Westerfield and State Representative Jason Petrie in Senator Westerfield’s office. Issues of general interest of those present were discussed as well as the policies of the Kentucky Farm Bureau.

Several pending Senate and House bills were reviewed.

Two main issues that were: sale tax exemption for over-the-counter drugs for farm animals (SB 117: D. Givens) and internet broadband deployment for “underserved and unserved areas” (HB 362: P.Pratt).

In addition to being well received by our state legislators, the Logan County delegation enjoyed touring the Kentucky State Capitol building which ranks as one of the top state capitol buildings in the nation.
