APA is calling on planning advocates to ask their representatives in Congress to support the Senate version of the Farm Bill.
While the bipartisan Senate measure advances important planning and local-food initiatives, expands access to healthy food, and builds on communities’ efforts to improve rural economies, the House version does not. Planners who explain now to elected officials why the Senate bill is better for planning may influence the legislative outcome.
Their Challenge: APA has set a goal for 100 calls during the month of August. When you’ve called your representative’s office, please inform APA Public Affairs Manager Emily Pasi at email@example.com.
