Federal Legislation

Our members are actively engaged in the legislative process at the federal level. Twice a year, usually in the spring and the fall, NDFU members participate in the National Farmers Union legislative fly-in to Washington, D.C. Farmers and ranchers from across the country meet directly with members of Congress to lobby on issues of importance to farm families. They also share their personal stories, helping lawmakers understand the challenges in rural America and how their decisions affect both producers and consumers.
