Cook County Farm Bureau® will host a policy discussion on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 7 p.m.  This discussion will take place via conference call and all farmer members are invited to join in. 

The discussion will primarily focus on private property rights, including the acquisition of land by the government or public utilities.  This remains a timely and pertinent issue given the Great Lakes Basin Railroad and the Rock Island Clean Line energy project.  Both projects will involve the acquisition, likely through eminent domain of private property.

Farmer members participating on the call will have ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues of concern to them, not related to the topic.

To participate in the discussion: Farmer members will receive an automated call just prior to 7 p.m. asking if they want to participate in the discussion. 

Once on the call, members will be able to hear the discussion, ask questions, and discuss topics of interest to them.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 7 p.m.
