FORREST LUCAS AND SENATOR MIKE PARSON HONORED FOR MISSOURI AMENDMENT 1 WORK
Protect The Harvest Founder and Chair Forrest Lucas and Missouri State Senator Mike Parson (R-Bolivar) were recognized by Missouri Farm Bureau for their outstanding work in the passage of Missouri's Amendment 1, the Right to Farm, this past August. In a press release on his Senate page, Senator Parson announced:
“I was honored to have been a part of drafting the language of Amendment 1 with members of the Missouri Farm Bureau, farmers, ranchers, as well as other agriculture organizations and commodity groups. The outcome of this amendment will positively affect a large portion of our state’s economy and cultural way of life for generations to come.” “The efforts put forth on Amendment 1 is a perfect example of what can happen when officials work together on behalf of the citizens we were elected to represent. I am hopeful this is just the beginning of the accomplishments we can achieve when we look past party lines and do what is best for the people of Missouri.”
We'd like to send a special thanks to Senator Parson for his work in fighting for farming rights and we look forward to Missouri agriculture's continued success as the state's number one industry.
