Olney, IL, USA / WVLN 740 AM/107.1 FM | CBS Sports Radio
Apr 5, 2021 7:26 AM
(WASHINGTON) Back on January 27th, the President issued an Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad. In response to this Executive Order, USDA is seeking input from farmers and other interested stakeholders to collect feedback on a climate-smart agriculture strategy. To collect this information, USDA has published a Federal Register notice posing a series of questions to allow farmers the opportunity to submit their comments and ideas. Illinois Farm Bureau is calling on members to utilize the ACT to submit their opinions and ideas to these questions by this coming Friday. Illinois Farm Bureau will be collecting submitted thoughts and ideas will be incorporated into an IFB public comment. Sign up for FB ACT, IFB’s grassroots advocacy program, and become an advocate for Illinois agriculture by offering your input to elected officials and regulatory agencies. IFB will call on members when it is time to act by sending text message and email alerts to you. Text FARM to 52886 or click on p2a.co/1RjZFxc.
