2023 Farmer Lobbyists to Visit D.C. this Month

On the Hill, C.R. Viewed to Finalize Approps, ‘23 Farm Bill

The Family Farm Alliance 2023 Farmer Lobbyists will descend on Washington, D.C. later this month, just as Congress will be scrambling to reach agreement on Fiscal Year 2024 federal spending and avoid a government shutdown.

“This year’s farmer lobbyist trip will once again present a unique opportunity for Alliance members to share with Members of Congress and the Biden Administration the important issues that impact Western irrigated agriculture,” said Mark Limbaugh with The Ferguson Group, the Alliance’s representative in Washington. 

Congress late last month left D.C. for August recess. The Senate returns to Washington on September 5th and the House on September 12th.
