Saturday SuperSession: Senator Tom Harkin, (D-IA)
9:00 – 10:00 am
Senator Harkin’s dedication to agriculture dates back to 1975 when he first came to Congress and became a member of the Agriculture Committee. In that time, he has served as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, where he led efforts to enact the 2002 and 2007 farm bills. These bills greatly expanded federal support for renewable energy, strengthened the farm income safety net, preserved millions and millions of acres of land through agriculture conservation efforts, invested hundreds of millions of dollars in small towns through rural development efforts and ensured tens of millions of Americans have access to sufficient and healthful food.
Natural Products Association MarketPlace has a lot to offer outside the show floor. All education and events are included with your registration unless otherwise noted.
