US growers stand up for potatoes on Capitol Hill

On February 23-26, NPC hosted the 2015 Potato D.C. Fly-In, where more than 150 U.S. potato growers and industry partners from across the country came to Washington, D.C., to advocate for the industry’s most pressing federal policy priorities. Growers blanketed Capitol Hill, meeting with 136 U.S. Senate and House offices representing 22 states and met with federal regulators at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). During their Hill visits, growers urged Congress to address key industry issues, including: funding for the Potato Research Special Grant; Pollinator Health; Truck Weight Reform; and Voluntary GMO Labeling.
