Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack last week testified before the full House Committee on Agriculture during a hearing on the state of the rural economy. The annual briefing is intended to cover a variety of pertinent agricultural topics and provides an opportunity to gain insight on issues of concern to Committee Members. NAMI staff worked with both minority and majority Committee staffs to successfully encourage discussion of important issues, such as mandatory country-of-origin labeling, Dietary Guidelines and the ongoing crisis at the West Coast ports.
