OKFB honors legislators with 2016 100 Percent Club award
Oklahoma Farm Bureau this week presented numerous legislators with its annual 100 Percent Club award for support of farmers, ranchers and rural Oklahoma during the 2016 legislative session.
“This honor is presented to those legislators who stand with Farm Bureau in its core mission of improving the lives of rural Oklahoma,” said Tom Buchanan, OKFB president. “We’re grateful to these state lawmakers for their leadership and service at the state Capitol.”
The award was presented to 53 current House members and 37 current Senate members for a 100 percent voting record with Farm Bureau-supported legislation.
Legislators were scored on four pieces of legislation which allowed night shooting of feral swine, increased penalties for cattle theft, lessened restrictions on prescribed burns, and granted driver’s licenses to temporary H-2A agricultural workers.
