Each year, our special guest, U.S. Congressman Mike Conaway, and hosts, State Senator Charles Perry and State Representative Drew Darby, join the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce in presenting the West Texas Legislative Summit, bringing together elected representatives, industry experts, and business leaders from across West Texas to discuss areas of common interest and concern. The forum gives urban and rural communities an opportunity to hear from legislators and experts on a topic deemed to be of critical importance to our area.

Major Discussion Topic: 2018 Farm Bill

This year, we anticipate the majority of our discussion, speakers and panel presentations will focus primarily on the 2018 Farm Bill. The current Farm Bill, known as the Agricultural Act of 2014, is set to expire next year and will require action by Congress to continue existing and potentially new programs. The Farm Bill provides an estimated $489 billion in federal funding nationwide to support a variety of food and agricultural programs including crop insurance, conservation, nutrition and trade.

Note: This program has been approved for 5 hours of continuing education credit for County Commissioners.
