State Sen. Larry Bomke, R-Springfield, is currently circulating
petitions objecting to gubernatorial plans that attack Illinois'
agriculture community. The plans would repeal the state's "feed and
seed" sales tax exemption for farmers with gross income of more than
$1 million, raid several ag funds, eliminate the C-FAR program, and
cap or restructure funding in the horse-racing industry.
Bomke, pictured here
with aide Lori Bottrell, is sending petitions to local farm bureaus
and agriculture groups.
