Washington’s priorities this week

As we mark national agriculture day, we are taking a look at the priorities in Washington this week.

Several committees will take on infrastructure, including those impacting energy, water, and even the power grid in Texas.

The sweeping infrastructure package could bring much-needed repairs to crumbling roads and bridges in rural America.

On Thursday, both the House and Senate Ag Committees will convene. Child Nutrition programs will be the Senate focus, which could result in a greater number of children being eligible for free meals. The House plans to review the state of black farmers in America.
