State Auditor Dave Yost is on a mission to cut the fat out of state and local governments.
For now, the Senate has agreed with the House to restore some of the funding that was initially cut from Ohio State Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in the state budget.
After more than a month of deliberations, the Ohio House passed its version of the state budget after making a series of changes to the proposal offered earlier this year by Gov. John Kasich, including a repeal of the Ohio Estate Tax.
Testimony is heating up in the Ohio Statehouse as advocates pursue changes to initial funding proposals for state agencies and programs. While the budget process is just getting underway, Ohio Farm Bureau is keeping a close eye on how the final budget may shape up.
Fun, hands-on agricultural experiences are the centerpiece of Ohio Farm Bureau’s exhibit at the Ohio State Fair. Last year the 'Land and Living' exhibit located in the Nationwide Donahey Ag & Hort Building drew an estimated 350,000 visitors who learned about agriculture’s link to everyday life.
The Ohio State Fair got off to a soggy start on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of eager fairgoers and the activity in Ohio Farm Bureau Federation’s (OFBF) “Land and Living” exhibit.
OFBF coordinated the “Land and Living: Agriculture Your Link to Life” exhibit at the Ohio State Fair where an estimated 350,000 fairgoers participated in an interactive agricultural display in a 32,000-square-foot building used exclusively for the display. More than 9,000 children planted a flower and took it home as part of the Green2Go exhibit, 5,256 children participated in a pedal tractor course called the OFBF Country Cruise, and 28 memberships were sold during the fair.
Ohio Farm Bureau is supporting legislation to modify the Agricultural Linked Deposit Program.
Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) develops policy each year through a member-driven grassroots process that is well underway and continues this week with the first meeting of the state policy development committee.
