March 12, 2017 a group of seven students headed to Harrisburg, PA to learn more about our government functions involving agriculture. Sunday kicked off with workshops about parliamentary law and basic legislation. Students were then split into the House of Representatives and the Senate. After that they met with their party and divided into committees. In the committees, student looked at previous agriculture bills and revised them. They then took those bills through their party and to the House or Senate floor. After debating about the bills and issues that PA FFA chapters have been facing, they met for reflection with the PA State FFA Officers. The evening was wrapped up with amending the bills in committees and dinner. Monday started off early with breakfast. The entire House and Senate then met to vote and pass the proposed bills. Sadly, the weekend was cut short due to snow conditions but each member came out with a greater understanding of how agriculture is involved in our government.
