NFU to Host Legislative Fly-In in September
USAgNet - 08/12/2022

Fresh off a busy August congressional recess and heading into the final legislative push before the November elections, National Farmers Union will be hosting the Fall Legislative Fly-In in Washington, D.C., beginning Sunday, September 11th through Wednesday, September 14th.

During the four-day gathering, Farmers Union members from across the country will meet with Members of Congress, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) officials, and representatives from other federal agencies. Throughout these meetings, Farmers Union members will share their legislative and policy priorities for the final months of 2022.

Farmers Union members will highlight the need for Fairness for Farmers policies, which include placing a special investigator for meat and poultry at USDA, strengthening the Packers and Stockyards Act, bringing more openness to the cattle market, re-establishing Country Of Origin Labeling for beef, and ensuring that farmers have the right to repair their own equipment.

Discussions will also be held to outline NFU’s priorities for the upcoming 2023 Farm Bill and how the Inflation Reduction Act can best help family farmers and ranchers address the climate crisis.
