Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development

The Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development has the responsibility to recommend, and in some cases determine, policy on food, agricultural, and rural development issues. The Commission is a bipartisan body of five citizens appointed by the Governor.

State law dictates that no more than three Commission members may be from the same political party. The Commission holds monthly meetings, with the exception of May and October, or as it deems necessary, and meetings are open to the public. Citizens and organizations wishing to observe or discuss matters under the Commission's jurisdiction are encouraged to attend.
