NPMA on the Hill
NPMA staff is kicking off 2020 with a massive educational push on the importance of preemption. VP of Public Policy Ashley Amidon visited with Rep. Rick Allen (R-GA-012), Rep. Jim Baird (R-IN-04), Rep. Pete Stauber (R-MN-8), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO-4), Rep Troy Balderson (R-OH-12), Rep Steve Chabot (R-OH-01), and Rep Kelly (R-MS-1) just in the last few days. Amidon has requested meetings with every member of the House Ag and House Small Business committee on this issue, and will be preparing all these offices for NPMA visits during our Legislative Day in March. NPMA continues to advocate for federal preemption on the Hill, and will focus on this issue as our #1 priority in 2020.
