BOISE Seventy-six legislators were named Ag All Stars by Food Producers of Idaho based on their voting records on selected pieces of legislation in the 2018 Idaho Legislative Session.
Senators named include Carl Crabtree of Grangeville and representatives named include Paul Shepherd of Riggins.
Food Producers of Idaho, representing more than 45 different agricultural commodity and farm organizations in Idaho, annually recognizes legislators for their voting record on issues supported or opposed by the organization. According to executive director Rick Waitley, the first year a legislator is honored, the award is an Ag license plate that reads, “AL STR.” Each year after the initial award, a smaller plate with that year engraved on it is presented to each honoree.
Ag All Star legislators are important to Idaho’s agriculture and natural resource industries. The award has been presented for the last 17 legislative sessions.
Every topic that is identified as a tracked issue by the Food Producers organization may be an issue that will be used on the organization’s scorecard at the end of the session.
