As an Oklahoma Farm Bureau member, you can have the opportunity to help shape the policy that affects the agriculture industry and rural Oklahoma. Over the next four months, OKFB staff will represent you at the state Capitol by advocating for your grassroots policy. Below, find four simple ways you can be engaged and involved in the legislative process this year.
Sign up for OKFB legislative action alerts
We know you’re busy on your farm or ranch each and every day, so we’ve made it simple for you to lend your voice to the conversation at the state Capitol. By signing up for OKFB action alerts, you can receive a notification when your legislator needs to hear from you on a specific issue. You can find more information and sign up online here.
Attend a county Farm Bureau legislative event
During the legislative session, many county Farm Bureaus host legislators in their districts at a breakfast, dinner or reception. These events provide an easy way to visit directly with your state lawmaker, learn what’s going on at the state Capitol, and voice any concerns you may have. Contact your county Farm Bureau office to find more details on county legislative events.
Schedule a visit to the state Capitol
Taking time away from the farm or ranch isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely worth it when you can speak for farmers and ranchers. Find a group of fellow Farm Bureau members and schedule a day to visit your state representative and senator in their offices at the state Capitol. OKFB staff will provide a briefing at the home office along with some tips for visiting with your legislators before guiding you to the state Capitol. Contact the OKFB Public Policy Division at (405) 523-2300 to schedule your visit.
Follow OKFB updates online
As the legislative session continues, OKFB will post updates on the organization’s efforts at the state Capitol on its Facebook and Twitter profiles and at okfarmbureau.org.
