Renewable energy headlines Illinois Farm Bureau delegate debate

Renewable energy policies took up much of the debate during the delegate session of the 2022 Illinois Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in Chicago today.

Executive Director of Governmental Affairs Mark Gebhards says when it comes to renewable energy, the organization is focused on finding the balance around private property rights.

“Protection of those private property rights is the core principle of our policy book, so how we go forward and try to find the balance, how we define what these renewable energy projects really are and how they affect our landowners was a focus of a lot of that debate.”

Speaking to reporters after the session, Gebhards said environmental social governance was another hot topic, with members in opposition to the Security and Exchange Commission’s proposed rule for corporations to report emissions.
