Read the story: Ohio Farm Bureau weighs in on Supreme Court property rights case

  • What concerns would you have if the State of Ohio gained ownership of the waterways that flow through private property as well their banks and shores?
  • What policy would you suggest that Ohio Farm Bureau adopt when it comes to balancing the rights of the landowner with the rights of the public to utilized navigable waters for activities such as recreation?
  • What other issues/concerns do you have in your community or on your farm when it comes to water and property rights?
