WORTHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Tina Smith’s (D-Minn.) staff will be in Worthington on Thursday to meet with regional farm, business, education and economic development leaders to discuss Minnesota's priorities in the five-year Farm Bill that will be debated in the Senate in the coming weeks. The meeting is part of the Senator’s statewide “Farm Bill Listening” tour.

Smith’s staff will be at Prairie Holdings Group in Worthington at 11 a.m. They will be joined by local farm and business leaders to discuss the Farm Bill. 

Smith, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, said the Farm Bill's farm, energy, rural development, conservation and nutrition provisions will have a dramatic economic impact on Minnesota’s farmers, businesses, schools, communities and families.  As the Farm Bill moves through Congress, she and her staff will conduct similar meetings across the state.
