The Farm Bill Listening Tour provides an opportunity to engage with and hear from constituents about the importance of the 2018 Farm Bill to New York State. What we learn during the tour will be provided to Governor Cuomo to help develop New York’s Farm Bill priorities for critical funding and policy changes in the areas of agriculture, nutrition, and the environment.
Joining NY Department of Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball at this first session will be OTDA Commissioner Samuel Roberts, DEC Deputy Commissioner Kathleen Moser, Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Patty Ritchie and Farm Bureau President David Fisher.
