Farm Bureau Volunteers Head to Washington D.C.
A group of about two hundred Kentucky Farm Bureau volunteers are in Washington D.C. to talk with lawmakers about key issues that relate to agriculture. Jeff Harper, the Director of Public Affairs for Kentucky Farm Bureau, says the group is talking with Congressional leaders about several areas of concern, including recent EPA proposals to regulate dust on the farm and a Department of Labor proposal regarding children working around the farm.
