National FFA members are participating in congressional visits with legislators during the Washington Leadership Conference.
Leadership Development Facilitator Luc Sproles says the 2023 Farm Bill is top of mind for members.
“It’s one of those times that farmers and the farm bill are directly in the spotlight when we’re working on passing this bill,” he says. “So a lot of things are getting talked about and brought up anywhere from hunger and nutrition assistance to crop protection for farmers, climate change, and also integrating new technologies into the ag world.”
He tells Brownfield hill visits during the Washington Leadership Conference are providing a great opportunity for students.
