KRC Offers Weekly Policy Watch E-Updates
KRC is once more offering weekly summaries of the Kansas State Legislature’s activities including hearings, bills introduced, testimony, calendars and background analysis. KRC’s policy analyst Paul Johnson will monitor the Legislature and report on critical issues and provide timely information on a range of issues including agriculture and food related topics, state budget (including education finance) and tax policies, energy and water policy, and social services issues. KRC will also include additional information on how to contact your legislator, additional resources available on key topics, and inform you of any opportunities to learn more about the legislative process or specific educational meetings on key topics. If you receive Rural Papers and have provided us an e-mail address, you automatically receive Policy Watch. But it is also available on our website at https://kansasruralcenter.org/legislative-policy-watch/.
KRC will also offer updates and information on the federal farm bill, courtesy of our membership in the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition. The federal farm bill and its programs impact all aspects of agriculture and food related policies, rural economic development, and natural resource management.
