House Committee on Agriculture to Host Listening Sessions in Texas & Minnesota

The House Committee on Agriculture will host Farm Bill listening sessions in San Angelo, Texas on July 21, 2017 and in Morgan, Minnesota on August 3, 2017. The sessions will provide legislators insight that will help them form the 2018 Farm Bill.
 
More information regarding the sessions will be available shortly. The sessions are often broadcasted on the House Committee on Agriculture website. Copies of witness testimonies will also be available.  
 
Both the House and Senate Committees on Agriculture have hosted farm bill listening sessions across the country. The sessions give members of congress the opportunity to engage with farmers and stakeholders in different regions about their issues and needs. In late June, the House committee heard testimony from farmers in Florida. The Senate committee held sessions in both Michigan and Kansas this year.  
 
CCOF encourages any stakeholders in Texas or Minnesota to attend. CCOF will continue to track the development of the 2018 Farm Bill. Please contact CCOF’s policy department with any questions.
