Several members of the Georgia Agribusiness Council (GAC) recently took part in the GAC Washington Legislative Fly-In, where important issues impacting Georgia agribusinesses were discussed. Visits included agriculture policy advisers at the White House, leadership from USDA, members of the Georgia Congressional delegation as well as the UGA Ag Fellows who are interning with Georgia representatives.
Some of the issues discussed while inWashingtonD.C. included Hurricane Michael disaster recovery, trade and market access, Animal ID disease traceability, regulatory reform and implementation and agriculture guest worker reform.
GAC notes these trips are vital to ensuring that agribusiness stays on the minds of our elected officials in Washington, DC.
