In association with the Yuma Area Ag Council, Western Growers helped sponsor the Biennial Yuma Legislative Ag Tour.  The two-day bus tour takes place every election year and is designed to educate Arizona legislators about the Yuma Ag Industry. Fifteen legislators, including Speaker-elect David Gowan and Senate Majority Leader-elect Steve Montenegro, participated in the tour this week, as well as ten House and Senate staff members.
