Published 12:00 am Thursday, September 20, 2012

The North Carolina’s General Assembly recently wrapped up a short session where most of the work focused on the budget. But according to N.C. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, a couple of pieces of farm-friendly legislation did make it through.
On Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at N.C. Cooperative Extension-Cabarrus County Center, Joy Hicks, policy development analyst, NCDA&CS; Ray Starling, general counsel, NCDA&CS; and Paul Sherman, air and energy programs director, N.C. Farm Bureau, will provide details of this legislation and how it will affect agricultural producers and agribusiness. They will discuss additional legislation that is likely to be brought before the next General Assembly for possible action. The public is invited. Please RSVP to 704-920-3333.
