RCAP Executive Director testifies on Capitol Hill

From the RCAP Blog: RCAP Executive Director Robert Stewart testified April 25 before the House Rural Development, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture Subcommittee of the Agriculture Committee. The subcommittee hosted the first in a series of hearings on the upcoming Farm Bill reauthorization. There were two panels focusing on the programs in the Rural Development Title. Stewart testified on the second panel, along with other witnesses that work in the rural utility field. The hearing was an opportunity to look at the RD programs authorized by the Farm Bill and see how they can be improved to work more effectively for communities.
