Michigan Farm Bureau outlines 2013 agenda


More than 400 Michigan farmers had a chance to meet with state legislators this week to talk about their priorities for 2013.  The Michigan Farm Bureau has outlined three main focus areas for its agenda: access to markets, workforce development, and regulatory reform. 

Current State’s Kevin Lavery speaks with Jennifer Lewis and Michael DeRuiter, both members of the Michigan Farm Bureau’s board of directors.  DeRuiter says access to markets largely means having good roads and bridges, a cause for which Governor Rick Snyder is urging the legislature to spend more than a billion dollars.

Kevin Lavery is a general assignment reporter and occasional local host for Morning Edition and All Things considered.
