To gather this feedback, the senator launched a web-based form to provide an opportunity for anyone interested in the future of farm policy to submit comments to the members of the agriculture committee, the vary members responsible for the construction and implementation of farm policy.
Producers are encouraged to visit www.agriculture.house.gov
