Congressional Briefing: Historical Perspectives on Federal Agricultural Policy

August 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Why has the farm legislation that Congress reauthorizes roughly every five years become so important to so many different groups?  How has the country shaped and been shaped by federal agricultural policies and the Farm Bill since the 1930s?  With a conference committee currently working to reconcile the Senate and House versions of the 2018 farm bill, this is a timely occasion to examine the origins and evolution of this legislation.

The briefing will take place on Monday, August 20 at 10:00 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2103, Washington DC.
