Farm Officials Reviewing Federal Legislation

Sponsored by:

Stockton, CA — Members of the House Agriculture Committee are reviewing comments by California farmers about a policy that enhances demand for American farm goods and gives farmers the tools to be the most efficient producers.

The committee held a meeting Friday to collect information to be used in rewriting federal farm legislation.

Farmers also told the committee that the new Farm Bill should expand investments in conservation programs, research and protection against pests and diseases.
