Unlike the Oregon and Washington sessions, the Idaho legislative session is fairly quiet for the farming community.  But that does not mean the agriculture industry isn’t watching what’s taking place in Boise very closely.  Cameron Mulrony, Vice President of Idaho Cattle says the 2023 session is unique because of a fairly dramatic shift in the make-up of the legislature, primarily thanks to redistricting.  He noted that comes in the form of individuals who moved from the House to the Senate, or lawmakers that are new to the Capital itself.


Even when there are not large pieces of legislation getting the attention of everyone across the state, every session there are discussions that could have an impact on agriculture.


“Labor workforce you know how commodities and commissions work you know there's there's been some related to our food sources things like that have been discussed,” Mulrony noted.
