Other Sessions that Discuss Legislation:
Federal Agricultural Policy, the Farm Bill, & Nutrition Assistance, Saturday April 29, 1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Join Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tyler Harper, along with key NACo and Congressional staff, as they discuss their collective tireless work to keep federal agricultural policy aligned with the best interests of Georgia’s #1 industry. Administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Farm Bill helps counties make critical investments in infrastructure, economic development, workforce training, nutrition, and conservation within some of our nation’s most underserved communities. For rural counties, the Farm Bill and its programs represent significant opportunities to address acute issues. For urban counties, the Farm Bill plays a key role in providing the necessary resources to ensure all individuals have access to nutrition.
