The August congressional recess is upon us, and elected offcials are back in their home districts and states spending time with their constituents. Now is the time to speak up and make your voice heard. Call and set up meetings with your elected offcials while they are home and attend town hall meetings. There are a number of legislative priorities for family farmers, ranchers and their rural communities that may be taken up this year in Congress. Read through this District Work Packet to find out more about these issues, and get in touch with your representatives to have your voice heard!
