National Association of Wheat Grower Veep Jimmie Musick in DC This Week- Carrying Farm Policy Message to Capitol HillMon, 24 Apr 2017 06:14:35 CDT
The National Association of Wheat Grower officers are in Washington this week- planning on meeting with lawmakers as they return from the two week Easter holiday recess- and perhaps to offer congratulations in person to Sonny Perdue, as a confirmation vote for the former Georgia Governor is expected this afternoon. Current Vice President Jimmie Musick of Sentinel, Oklahoma talked with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about the time this week in DC- Hays and Musick discussed the fly in on Saturday at the Oklahoma City Farm Show as he stopped at the RON booth.
Musick says that they plan on reminding lawmakers about staying the course on Crop Insurance as an integral part of the federal farm safety net- and that NAWG hopes to encourage Secretary Purdue to be a strong advocate for agricultural interests within the Trump Cabinet.
