Congressman Marshall announces 2017 Farm Bill Listening Tour

Congressman Roger Marshall has announced a 2017 Farm Bill Listening Tour across Kansas' Big First Congressional District.

The 2017 Farm Bill Listening Tour will be open to the public, and will focus on trade, nutrition, commodity programs, and other issues anticipated to be a part of the 2018 Farm Bill discussion.

"Agriculture is the lifeblood of the Big 1st," Congressman Marshall said. "On the 2017 Farm Bill Listening Tour, I aim to discuss the concerns - and most importantly - hear the ideas of those impacted by the bill. These ideas will be immeasurably valuable as my colleagues and I begin discussion and deliberation on the next Farm Bill. My job is to be a voice for Kansans, and I intend to begin that work with the ideas of the folks I represent."

In addition to the 10 Farm Bill Listening Tour stops below, the Congressman will also hold an August Listening Tour stop in Hugoton at Pioneer Manor on August 21st at 2 p.m..
