Congressional Recess. Your Time to Make a Difference!

Over the 4th of July recess your elected officials will be returning to their state and districts and will be heavily engaged in constituent outreach at 4th of July parades, picnics and events. If you are attending one of these, take this as an opportunity to talk to your elected official and tell them what you do to protect public health and how you need their support for a Farm Bill that includes bipartisan pesticide regulatory reform provisions.

For those folks that have relationships with the below legislators, or if you or your colleagues reside in their state/district, please take the time to reach out as we believe these individuals will likely be part of the Farm Bill conference committee and will play an important role in final bill language.
