Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio has introduced a great local foods amendment (#1088), expanding economic development opportunities for rural communities without any cost to taxpayers. This is an opportunity to take a huge step in the right direction to better our nation’s future for both food and farms. In order to make these provisions a reality, we need to show our support. Please call your Senators and urge them to support the Brown amendment.
