The Georgia Agribusiness Council (GAC) invites those interested to attend the 2018 Ag Issues Summit, which will be held August 23 in Perry. While the meeting is free, registration is required as space is limited. Georgia’s two Agriculture Committee Chairmen, Senator John Wilkinson and Representative Tom McCall are hosting this year’s event. The agenda includes several important agricultural issues such as:
- Modifications to the Georgia Ag Tax Exemption (GATE) program.
- The impact of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on water use.
- Information on the new Georgia Center for Rural Prosperity & Innovation based in Tifton.
- Legislation and action on expanding ag education programs.
This will be a great opportunity to hear about current policy issues and give input. The Georgia Agribusiness Council is proud to be a lunch sponsor of this event along with the Georgia Urban Ag Council, Georgia Poultry Federation, Georgia Farm Bureau, and the Georgia Forestry Association.
