House and Senate conferees concluded negotiations yesterday on the long overdue and much anticipated Farm Bill (The Agricultural Act of 2014).  The legislation includes several important measures and spending increases for the specialty crop industry including:  research, pest and disease prevention, state block grants, and child nutrition.  The conference report is expected to be voted on in the House tomorrow and in the Senate on Friday. ACTION IS NEEDED BY YOU to ensure its passage in both chambers.

With Christmas only a week away, it is never too late to think about the best way to ensure a safe and happy holiday season.  We all get involved with charity activities, church events, holiday parties and family get-togethers. These events have many common factors -- lots of people, food, and sometimes alcoholic beverages.
