U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., will sponsor a listening session about the farm bill 9 a.m. Thursday during the Spokane Ag Expo and Pacific Northwest Farm Forum.
“We’re thrilled to have her at the show for this listening session, to discuss with our attendees with regards to the Farm Bill,” said Myrna O’ Leary, director of the Expo.
The current farm bill is slated to expire at the end of September.
O’Leary anticipates the farm bill will be on a lot of growers’ minds.
“I would be surprised if it’s not,” she said.
