Letter to Senator White

Below is a letter from Albert Krueger, President of the Rio Blanco Farm Bureau, to Senator White asking him to defend the exemptions given to farmers and vote NO on HB 1195.  The Farm Bureau encourages members to write similar letters to your Representatives and Senators defending the tax exemptions in place.

Dear Senator White.

The Board of Directors of Rio Blanco Farm Bureau met on Monday February 1, 2010. The Board is very concerned about the negative impact of HB 1195 on agricultural producers, especially on the ranching families in North West Colorado.  Any tax on agricultural compounds and semen will increase the expenses for the producers. Most cattle producers are already operating on extremely thin margins and the herds are shrinking up and down the White River.

Not a lot of people are employed in agriculture but the positive economic impact of an industry taking care of our renewable resources is very significant.

Please defend this tax exemption on behalf of rural, remote Colorado.

Albert Krueger
President Rio Blanco Farm Bureau
