BOISE -- Future Farmers of America supporters plan to ask Idaho lawmakers for $2.24 million to help maintain and improve the state's secondary agricultural education programs.

The Capital Press reports that the Idaho FFA Association, Idaho FFA Alumni Association and Idaho FFA Foundation support the plan to ask the 2014 Legislature for the money.

The initiative includes professional development programs, incentive grants, and $25,000 startup grants for education programs.

Officials say state funding for secondary agricultural education hasn't increased since 1998.
