Farm Bureau plans opposition to merger bill

February 05, 1993

Carroll County Farm Bureau members are inviting farmers and other residents to go to Annapolis Tuesday to show their opposition to a bill that would merge the state Department of Agriculture with the Department of Natural Resources.

The bill, sponsored by House Speaker R. Clayton Mitchell Jr., would merge the two departments and immediately cut their combined budgets by 20 percent.

Carroll residents will be leaving by bus from the Carroll County Agricultural Center at 10 a.m. and return to Westminster by 3 p.m.

"We're going to try and get back by 3 so people can get back to work," said Carroll County Farm Bureau Secretary Sharon Fritz.

Information: 857-5503.
