policy action!

What is going on with the Farm Bill?! 
Here is the latest: Members of the House of Representatives are in Washington for a few more days. They’ll come home to your district next week to campaign, and won’t go back until after the elections. Meanwhile, if Congress does nothing, the programs that help farmers, ranchers, and rural communities will be threatened.
Will you click here to call your representative and tell them you want them to pass a Farm Bill extension that includes critical funding for beginning farmers and ranchers, and rural development?
Unless Congress takes action to protect these programs, they will expire on September 30. Hundreds of millions of dollars for sustainable agriculture, rural economic development, and beginning farmer support will literally disappear. This is unacceptable – take just 5 minutes to call your Representative today!
