March 2, 2021 – Courtesy Texas Farm Bureau – The Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) conducted its Virtual Leadership Conference on Tuesday, Feb. 9. The leadership conference, hosted by TFB President Russell Boening, was different from typical leadership conferences during past sessions. Regardless, it served as a testimony to our resilience and determination to continue advocating for TFB members, its beliefs and the rural way of life.
During the webinar, attendees heard from several legislators on a variety of topics affecting agriculture and rural communities in Texas. Discussion covered eminent domain reform, broadband access for rural Texas, groundwater and questions raised by the more than 200 attendees across the state. Legislators also shared their personal perspectives and hopes for the 87th legislative session.
The TFB Legislative team in Austin shared updates on legislation regarding TFB’s priority issues. Also presented was information regarding COVID-19 procedures and protocols for visiting the Capitol.
The leadership conference left all with a sense of excitement and anticipation for this most unique legislative session. TFB is thankful for the visits with the legislators and for their continued support and role in echoing the voice of Texas agriculture.
