National Farmers Union (NFU) Vice President of Government Relations Chandler Goule participated in the Farm Journal Forum today on a panel entitled, “Point Counterpoint: Policy Innovations and Implications for Implementation.”
“The Farm Journal Forum is always a great opportunity for policy dialogue across all sectors of the agriculture industry,” said Goule.
Joining Goule on the panel was Mary Kay Thatcher, Director of Public Policy, American Farm Bureau Federation. Sara Wyant, president of Agri-Pulse, moderated the panel.
“NFU is optimistic that the conference committee will come to an agreement soon on the 2013 Farm Bill,” said Goule. “It is critical to our members and all Americans that a farm bill be signed into law soon. The lack of certainty for so long is detrimental to making business and other household decisions.”
National Farmers Union has been working since 1902 to protect and enhance the economic well-being and quality of life for family farmers, ranchers and rural communities through advocating grassroots-driven policy positions adopted by its membership.
