Va. governor, congressman support farmers
October 07, 2010
Gov. Bob McDonnell and Rep. Randy Forbes are among the supporters of a U.S. House of Representatives bill that they say takes a reasonable approach to Chesapeake Bay improvement efforts. They explain on The Real Dirt that legislation co-sponsored by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte strikes a better balance for farmers and actually would do more to improve and protect the bay than another bill being considered by the U.S. Senate.
Virginia Farm Bureau Federation is using The Real Dirt, a video blog on YouTube (TheRealDirtVA) and VaFarmBureau.org, to share information about its producer members’ concerns.
