    Dianne Swanson|Jun 12, 2024

    The EPA requires documentation of water pipes from all entities, whether municipal or private, to determine if there are lead pipes being used for the water supply to homes.

  • Don't Rush Wrong Farm Bill: Take Time To Forge Bill That Strengthens Family Farms & Ranches

    Walter Schweitzer|Jun 12, 2024

    Recently, I joined other National Farmers Union leaders in meetings with the House Ag and Senate Ag committees about each of their versions of the 2024 Farm Bill. Based on those discussions, a tight timeline, and the need for modifications to both versions, I’m not optimistic for the passage of a 2024 Farm Bill but foresee another extension. The Senate version and the House version of the Farm Bill are strikingly different — and, in the current Congress, “compromise” is a dirty word. Nonetheless, Congress will not allow the Farm Bill to expi...

    Jodi Berry|Jun 12, 2024
