Ahead of the next farm bill, the House Agriculture Committee is conducting a series of listening sessions across the country intended to stimulate conversation and gather input from farmers, ranchers and other key stakeholders.
Chairman Michael Conaway (TX-11) and members of the Committee will be in Modesto this Saturday, August 5th, at the ACE Ag Pavilion (Modesto Junior College West Campus). Beginning at 9:00 a.m., any attendee who wishes to speak will have two minutes for comments. Additionally, the Committee will be electronically collecting written testimony.
We encourage all Western Growers members willing to travel to Modesto to attend and represent our association and industry.
“When it comes to writing farm bills, the House Agriculture Committee has a long history of getting out of Washington and speaking with the folks these policies are intended to serve. I’m looking forward to these events, and I encourage farmers, ranchers and other stakeholders to join us,” said Chairman Conaway.
