NEW FEDERATION BLOG TRACKS NATIONAL FARM POLICY
Alabama farmers can better track policies and decisions made by national leaders through a new blog by Alabama Farmers Federation National Legislative Programs Director Mitt Walker.
Readers can subscribe to AlfaFarmersDC.com for free and will receive email notification when Walker or a guest blogger makes a new post.
“This new service will allow us to do an even better job of keeping our members up to date on federal legislative matters,” Walker said. “To the casual observer it may seem like things move at a snail’s pace in Washington. In reality, issues can be debated pretty quickly and can change on a moment’s notice. This tool provides updates to our members in real time.”
The blog’s inaugural post “Will Farm Policy Take A Backseat To Foreign Policy?” discusses possible delays of the pending farm bill with Congress contemplating decisions of how to respond to the Syrian military crisis.
