Senate experts to speak on farm bill at Reno law conference


This June, the University of Nevada, Reno will welcome agricultural policy veterans Fitzhugh Elder IV and Rosy Brummette to the 2nd Annual Western Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference. Their session, titled "Update from the Potomac - 2024 Farm Bill, Public Lands, & Related Federal Issues," will delve into the complexities of the Farm Bill and its implications for the western U.S.

As key figures in agricultural policy, Elder, the Republican staff director for the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, and Brummette, a policy advisor for U.S. Senator Michael F. Bennet, will discuss upcoming changes and challenges in federal legislation that could impact the region significantly. Topics will include updates on specialty crops, dairy, forestry, conservation efforts, and the burgeoning sector of carbon markets.

The conference, scheduled for June 13-14, will not only feature this critical session but also offer attendees the chance to earn continuing legal education credits, enhancing their professional development. With options for both in-person and online participation, the conference aims to reach a broad audience interested in the intersections of agriculture, law, and environmental stewardship.

This event is an essential opportunity for those involved in the agricultural sector to engage with leading experts and gain a deeper understanding of federal agricultural policies and their regional impacts. The National Agricultural Law Center has organized the conference to facilitate dialogue and learning on these vital issues, reinforcing its commitment to supporting the nation's agricultural community through education and legal expertise.
