Senator Brady was pleased to welcome FFA students from his district to the Capitol on Thursday, March 5th for the annual agricultural education day. Illinois has a diverse background in agricultural education and the state’s youth often get their start in hundreds of FFA Chapters and county fairs across the state. One-quarter of the state’s economy is based in agriculture and today more than ever, the state’s FFA and county fair programs are a vibrant part of the Land of Lincoln’s rich ag history. Senator Brady met with agriculture education students and teachers from his district to discuss the continued importance of agriculture to our state. Additionally, Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) introduced the 2015 Illinois State Fair Queen and the 2014-2014 Illinois State FFA President on the Senate floor.
