Staying true to our grassroots, Colorado Farm Bureau members have spoken out with hundreds of CFB members sending postcards telling the Colorado State Legislature that any legislation discussed in Colorado needs to protect the Prior Appropriation Doctrine.
"Colorado farmers and ranchers are voicing their concerns, and the intensity of the message has been increasing with more and more responses flooding the mailbox each day," continued Shawcroft.

Prior to the start of the general assembly, Colorado Farm Bureau designated the following six areas as priorities for the legislative session: water, property rights, infrastructure, animal welfare, energy and wildlife.
Midway through the 2016 legislative session, CFB has addressed bills concerning water, conservation easement landowner relief, agricultural innovation grants, mandatory employer E-verify, broadband deployment, transportation, property rights for mineral owners and anti-oil and gas bills.
"Food, water and ag issues are non-partisan, so we work hard with the leaders and individual members of both chambers to promote and protect agriculture and the Colorado way of life," Shawcroft stated.
