In anticipation of the 2012 Farm Bill, U.S. Representative Martha Roby will be hosting a Farm Bill listening forum jointly with Alabama Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan. The forum agenda will include farmers from Alabama’s Second Congressional District speaking about relevant agriculture issues.

The joint listening forum with Alabama Agriculture Commissioner McMillan will be held at the Pike County Cattleman’s Association Building in Troy on Thursday, June 30, 2011, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm CST.

The House Agriculture Committee maintains the responsibility of writing the Farm Bill in the House of Representatives and will begin to hold hearings and discussion on the various titles in the upcoming months. As a member of the committee, it is vital for Rep. Roby to hear from Alabama farmers about their thoughts for the upcoming Farm Bill. This will be the first of a series of opportunities for citizens of the Second District to inform Rep. Roby of the programs important to them.
