Legislative Agricultural Chairs VI
January 18-20, 2008 | St Louis, Missouri
According to the evaluations, the 2008 meeting was another roaring success. Legislators met early and discussed state dairy policy, saw biotechnology and beer production in action and worked with their counterparts in 46 states, U.S. territories and 6 Canadian provinces. The LAC meeting truly is a unique opportunity to develop understanding and unity among state officials as they discuss agricultural and rural issues. Attendees this year also changed the by-laws to allow the consideration and acceptance of resolutions, passing two resolutions in support of rural development and American agriculture.
