Legislative Affairs

New York Farm Bureau's Public Policy Department identifies consensus issues and advocates for our members’ interests on state and national levels to guide legislative and regulatory proposals for the benefit of agricultural industry and our rural communities.

The staff pursues the priorities set each year by the NYFB Board of Directors and uses the grassroots public policy developed by members at the State Annual Meeting as a guide.

NYFB lobbyists carefully monitor bills that are introduced in the State Legislature and Congress, as well as regulations proposed by state and national agencies, and support proposals that benefit agriculture while opposing those that hurt farmers and the food supply.

We are your voice and we value your ideas and opinions.
