The Public Policy Department coordinates the implementation of Farm Bureau policy on state and national levels. This includes conducting and maintaining contact in the state and national legislative arenas, as well as with regulatory entities that govern our laws. The purpose of the Public Policy Department is to develop and implement a program that mobilizes the full resources of the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation to carry out the policy determined by the organization’s voting delegates.
The Public Policy Department is responsible for monitoring the impact of government actions on agriculture and for speaking to elected and appointed officials in a timely, effective and united voice. Our State Legislative Affairs team is based in Jackson and serves as the link between our members and government officials at the state level. They work with the state Legislature, Governor’s office and other departments and agencies to promote Farm Bureau policy as set by our grassroots members.
