Keep Up With the State Legislature and More in 2013
Will Kansas try once again to ease rules on important issues, as they did last year on CAFO’s and fracking? How will our tax system changes shape up and potentially impact our state’s services and rural communities? When will we get a Farm Bill out of Washington — and when we do, will it support sustainable agriculture, diversified farms and rural communities?
Once again in 2013, the Kansas Rural Center will send our policy analyst, Paul Johnson, to Topeka to report every week from the State Legislature about issues and action that are important to our rural communities, our environment, and our food and farming system. Plus, we’ll be monitoring activity in Washington through our participation in the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition. And we’ll be sending those reports out to you, in our weekly “Policy Watch E-Update” electronic newsletter, direct to your in-box.
Make sure you’re on KRC’s list to receive this important e-News. You won’t want to miss any of this info, much of which is not covered any-where else — and certainly not with our level of depth and perspective.
If you’ve donated to our 2013 Annual Giving Campaign — with a donation since November 1, 2012 — you’re automatically on the list (if we have your updated e-mail address!)
If you have not already donated, please consider doing so. We are asking for a minimum $35 donation to help us support Kansas farmers in sustainable agriculture and a sustainable food system for all Kansans.
As our thanks to you, we’ll provide both the Rural Papers and Policy Watch Weekly E-Updates.
To ensure that you receive the electronic Weekly Updates from our Policy Watch Project, send in your contribution to KRC, and sign- up today providing us your e-mail address using the insert coupon to this newsletter.
