OH-18: Space (D) To Start Week-Long Listening Tour on Farm Bill

Starting on Saturday, freshman member of Congress Zack Space (D-Dover) will travel to seven locations throughout the 18th District, to hear from farmers what they have to say about the new Farm Bill.

"The Farm Bill is crucial to the economic future of Southeastern Ohio, and I'm looking forward to meeting with farmers and producers throughout the district to learn more about how I can fight for them in Washington," said Space. "Farmers can count on me to be a strong advocate for them and their communities, but to be as effective as possible I need to hear directly from them."

In addition to the seven public forums (listed below), Space will visit a number of private farms, as well as tour several ethanol plants. "This bill is such an enormous undertaking in the life of our farmers nationwide and in the life of southeastern Ohio," said Space. "It's absolutely critical that I get as much information and feedback from our farming families as I possibly can."
