May 11, 2023

12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Location: Webinar

In large omnibus legislation like the Farm Bill, it’s easy for good ideas to get lost. Grouping proposed legislation into small packages focused around key issues can help get the attention of lawmakers—that’s where marker bills come in!

Join us to learn how advocates use marker bills to build support among legislators and to raise public awareness and grow grassroots support for policy change.

Policy experts from National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) will provide an overview of the legislative landscape and offer some real-world policy solutions to your on-farm challenges.

We’ll dig into several marker bills that have already been drafted or introduced with the hope of inclusion in the 2023 Farm Bill. Bring your farm and food policy wishlist! By the end you’ll be asking, “Is there a marker bill for that?”
