The FB Advocacy network is designed to raise awareness among Congress and the administration about how public policies impact farmers and ranchers, consumers and the agriculture industry.
We provide state Farm Bureaus and Farm Bureau® members the skills and tools to be effective advocates and to develop and strategically leverage thought leaders for agriculture.
Just as the work of feeding our nation begins on the farm, we believe that’s where the policy shaping our industry should begin as well. That’s why AFBF’s work in Washington is driven by the policy priorities set directly by our farm and ranch family members.
Congress is moving forward with a $3.5 trillion fiscal year 2022 budget resolution which will need to be offset by some combination of federal spending reductions, additional deficit spending and tax increases, including the elimination of stepped-up basis and imposition of capital gains at death. This would be devastating to American agriculture.
