Legislation to Support Agritourism in the United States
October 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
On August 11, U.S. Representatives Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) and Dan Newhouse (R-WA) introduced the bipartisan AGRITOURISM Act. This legislation would create an Office of Agritourism in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to represent the interests of agritourism businesses and consolidate federal resources to sustain agritourism businesses, such as loans, grants, and broadband connectivity programs. At this webinar, we will be joined by legislative leaders in the process, including the author of the legislation, Representative Jennifer Wexton from Virginia. Legislative leaders will present information about the purpose and intent of the bill, along with anticipatied actions and timelines. Webinar participants will be invited to ask questions about the legislation, as well as discuss ways to assist in the process and advocate for agritourism support in the U.S.
