Farm Broadcasters in Nation’s Capitol

NAFB Washington WatchIt’s time for National Association of Farm Broadcasting members to gather in Washington, DC for their annual Washington Watch program.

Activities this afternoon with the Issues Forum, sponsored by the Renewable Fuels Association. Among the topics sure to be discussed will be what a new farm bill may hold for renewable energy and the latest on attacks to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

Tomorrow morning the farm broadcasters meet up at USDA and will be speaking with a number of department heads including Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. It looks like Wednesday morning will be all about the Farm Bill with input from various members of the Senate and House where their versions of the new legislation are going through mark ups this week.
