Legislators meet with Farm Bureau this weekend

Staff reports

A bipartisan group of state legislators will meet with rural voters this weekend at the 2009 Colorado Farm Bureau annual meeting in Centennial.

A forum, featuring Sen. Mary Hodge, D-Brighton, Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, Rep. Sal Pace, D-Pueblo, and Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg, R-Sterling, will be from 1:30-2:15 p.m. and again from 2:25-3:15 p.m., Friday, at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center.

The legislators will be part of a panel discussion about the upcoming 2010 legislative session and will also be taking questions from the assembled members.

The state budget will undoubtedly be a large part of the discussion. The agriculture industry is facing significant changes with a strapped state budget, Farm Bureau officials said.
