Farm Bureau members talk about broadband to policymakers – including Rep Barb Haley from Goodhue

The Kenyon Leader reports…

Nearly 100 Farm Bureau members from Minnesota met with legislators on April 2. Their message to legislators focused on property tax reform and other tax issues including buffer property tax relief, clarifying ag homestead classification requirements and federal tax conformity issues; funding for additional statewide mental health resources to support farm families; legislation to further invest in Minnesota’s rural roads and bridges; and the importance of funding broadband access.
