Illinois FFA, 4-H members witness history
A historic day at the U.S. Supreme Court will be more than a date in a history book for the Illinois teens and adults on this week’s Illinois Farm Bureau and Affiliates Youth to Washington Tour.
Published: Jun 29, 2012
The FFA and 4-H members were in Washington, D.C., Thursday when the Supreme Court ruled on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. While the Illinois group did not tour the Supreme Court Building, members saw the demonstrations and activity outside.
“The FFA members had the opportunity to witness history first hand and the reaction of the crowd after the ruling was handed down,” said Mariah Dale-Anderson, IFB special service manager who supervised the trip.
“Many of our FFA members did understand the impact of what had happened and better understand our political system ... through this experience,” she noted.
