The Missouri Farm Bureau says that state needs to do more in the way of expanding access to rural broadband. That’s one of the legislative priorities they intend to focus on during the upcoming regular session of the General Assembly. Every December, Farm Bureau delegates meet to vote on the items they feel are most urgent. Some of the other items on their list this year include protection of property rights in lieu of approval of the Clean Line Grain Belt transmission line; agritourism and cooperation with local governments to help promote it; expanded used of biodiesel; and caps on productivity value increases on farmland leading to large increases in property taxes.
