* Weekly E-Updates January-May 2013. KRC Policy Analyst Paul Johnson will produce weekly e-reports from Topeka about bills and issues related to farm and food policy. He will monitor state budget and tax issues, state agriculture department activities, programs impacting water conservation and quality, and food safety, labeling, processing and marketing.
* Federal Farm Bill Updates through 2013.
As the 2012 federal farm bill develops, KRC will provide information on key issues and programs through the Weekly E-Updates January-May, and as needed the remainder of the year.

Will Kansas try once again to ease rules on important issues such as CAFO’s and fracking? How will our tax system changes impact our state’s services and rural communities? Will we ever get a Farm Bill out of Washington -- and if we do, will it support sustainable ag, small farms and rural communities?
Once again in 2013, the Kansas Rural Center will send our policy analyst, Paul Johnson, to Topeka to report every week from the legislature about issues and action that are important to our our rural communities, our environment, and our food and farming system. Plus, we’ll be monitoring activity in Washington through our partipation in the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition.
And we’ll be sending those reports out to you every week during the spring and as-needed thereafter, direct to your inbox as our “Legislative and Policy Watch” electronic newsletter.
Make sure you’re on our list to receive this important e-News! You won’t want to miss any of this info, much of which is not covered anywhere else, by anyone else -- and certainly not with our level of depth and perspective.
KRC will provide information and analysis, provide dates and times of critical hearings, and offer coverage and analysis of testimony and key decisions -- allowing you the opportunity to understand and weigh in on the issues impacting you, your family, your community, and your future.
2013 Key Issues.
Through Policy Watch, stay up-to-date on these issues we predict will take center stage in 2013:
KRC's Legislative and Policy Watch Project is funded in part by a bequest from longtime KRC supporter Jan Garton, Manhattan, who died in 2009. Your donations continue to help us provide advocacy activities, along with research and education to support a sustainable food and farming system in Kansas. We suggest a minimum donation of $35 as a friend of KRC. Thank you!
