2020 Dates: March 23-27 • Washington, D.C.
Please note: The 2020 Congressional Action Tour was postponed from its original dates in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak. OKFB will consider either doing a fall trip if conditions allow, or resume our DC trip in 2021.
Oklahoma Farm Bureau members gather in the nation’s capital to advocate for agriculture and rural issues on a national scale during OKFB’s annual Congressional Action Tour.
This week-long trip gives Farm Bureau members the opportunity to hear directly from Oklahoma’s congressional delegation and visit with them about the issues and policies that affect OKFB members and their rural communities the most. Farm Bureau members also visit agencies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to learn from agency staff about the work they do that impacts farmers and ranchers in Oklahoma and across the nation.
Held in March or April of each year, the exact dates for the Congressional Action Tour vary from year to year, depending on the availability of congressmen and congresswomen and other agricultural events.
