As you might need observed, this Congress has already made some historical past, taking 15 ballots to elect Kevin McCarthy speaker of the Home. As that mud settles, the principles of the Home have been agreed upon, and committee membership will get finalized, we at OFRF and our companions are getting a clearer image of the Farm Invoice panorama. One factor stays abundantly clear, that agricultural analysis continues to be a vibrant spot for bipartisan laws, and we’re excited to leverage that truth this Farm Invoice cycle.
In case you missed it, we printed a chunk within the Natural Farmer Affiliation’s Natural Voice, “Stepping Up To The Natural Analysis Problem: The 2023 Farm Invoice Should Develop Investments to Meet Rising Demand.” In it, we lay out our three priorities for natural analysis for the 2023 Farm Invoice. First, improve the natural analysis funding on the Agricultural Analysis Service to symbolize its market share, producing environmentally and economically sound administration techniques for all producers. Second, proceed to help and develop the investments the Nationwide Institute for Meals and Agriculture has been making in natural agriculture analysis. Lastly, absolutely fund and develop the Natural Market and Knowledge Initiative.
