Illinois Farm Bureau is asking Farm Bureau members to send an email to their U.S. Representative asking them to cosponsor and support two pieces of legislation, the Stopping Excessive Climate Reporting Act, and the Protect Farmers from the SEC Act.
Earlier this year, the SEC proposed a rule to require climate-related disclosures for publicly traded companies. If adopted, the rule would mandate climate
will regulate not
traded companies but would impact every company in the value chain, including farms. The task of reporting and tracking emissions data would fall to farmers who lack the resources and means to document all the necessary information. This could include potentially invasive and burdensome information about farms in the reports.
To send your email, click on the red box above. You can also text ‘SEC’ to 52886 to take action and send your message today.
Vermilion County Farm Bureau
members are urged to post signs
on their property to promote the
IL Farm Bureau $1,000 Crime
Reward Program. It offers a

The signs are available at the Farm Bureau office. The first sign is free, with additional signs available for cost ($2.50). There are also stickers available that the be placed on your property as a deterrent to rural crime.

Harvest season has begun, with
farmers spending long hours
bringing in this year's crop. That
means farm equipment will be
sharing the roads. Although
National Farm Safety & Health
Week is past, you still need to be
vigilant about staying safe and
healthy throughout the harvest
season. Be safe on rural roads while farm equipment is moving from farm to field. Take rest and meal breaks to keep yourself physically and mentally fit to get through the harvest season.
