On June 5, U.S. House of Representatives members Jimmy Panetta (D, CA-21) and Rodney Davis (R, IL-13), established the bipartisan Congressional Agriculture Research Caucus to focus on topics related to agriculture research, innovation, and mechanization efforts. As Congress prepares for the 2018 Farm Bill, the Caucus will provide a platform to highlight the challenges facing agricultural producers across the country.
Reps. Panetta and Davis hope to educate and engage other members of Congress on these issues. That's where we need your engagement.
You can help develop new congressional champions for food, agriculture and natural resources research by asking your Representative to join the Agriculture Research Caucus.
