Franken staff to hold farm bill meetings

As the U.S. Senate begins work on the 2012 Farm Bill, key members of Senator Al Franken's staff will hold a Farm Bill Outreach Tour in communities across Minnesota to update the farmers, ranchers, and agriculture officials on the status of the Farm Bill and to hear their concerns. Senator Franken will use the input he receives from these meetings during the upcoming Senate debate to ensure Minnesota's interests are reflected in the bill. The meetings will be led by Senator Franken's Minnesota Agriculture Advisor Al Juhnke. They are free and open to the public.

Sen. Franken believes a strong farm economy is key to Minnesota's economic vitality and that the 2012 Farm Bill will be critically important to farmers, ranchers and rural communities across the state.
