The North Carolina's General Assembly recently wrapped up a
short session where most of the work focused on the budget. But
according to N.C. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, a couple of
pieces of farm-friendly legislation did make it through.
On Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at N.C. Cooperative
Extension-Cabarrus County Center, Joy Hicks, policy development analyst,
NCDA&CS; Ray Starling, general counsel, NCDA&CS; and Paul
Sherman, air and energy programs director, N.C. Farm Bureau, will
provide details of this legislation and how it will affect agricultural
producers and agribusiness. They will discuss additional legislation
that is likely to be brought before the next General Assembly for
possible action. The public is invited. Please RSVP to 704-920-3333.
For information, please call Carl D. Pless, Jr. extension agent at 704-920-3310.
