farmfoundationlogo3The current Farm Bill may not expire for two years yet but the process of making a new one is already starting to get in motion.

The “Next Farm Bill: What are the Agendas?” will be the topic for the Farm Foundation® Forum this Wednesday, November 30. Invited to present perspectives from their respective stakeholder groups are:

• Chuck Conner, President and CEO of the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives;
• Scott Faber, Vice President of Government Affairs for the Environmental Working Group; and
• Daren Bakst, Agricultural Research Policy Fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

Farm Foundation President Constance Cullman will moderate the discussion, which will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. EST at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. A free live audiocast will also be available. There is no charge to participate in the forum, but registration is requested.
