NFU Policy Committee Convenes in D.C.
Wisconsin Ag Connection - National Farmers Union's 2019 Policy Committee is in Washington, D.C. this week to begin the organization's policy-setting process. Over the course of the week, the committee will meet with congressional staff members and industry experts to discuss
important agricultural issues.
Additionally, the group began editing NFU's Policy Book to reflect current concerns and priorities. These changes will be presented to delegates at NFU's Convention in March, who will then have the opportunity to assess, approve, and adopt recommendations.
The members of this year's committee are Marcy Svenningsen of North Dakota, Wayne Herriman of Oklahoma, Todd Hagenbuch of Colorado, Steven Read of Minnesota, Saleh Azizi of Hawaii, and Oren Jacobson of Wisconsin. The committee members are all outstanding leaders in their state/regional Farmers Union organizations, and were nominated by their respective states' presidents to serve on the committee.
