Kentucky Farm Bureau News - April 2013

More than 200 members participated in this year's Congressional Tour, which coincided with the late-February buzz over the federal budget sequestration (that went into effect later that week). Federal spending, deficits, and debt were the primary topics in the remarks of Kentucky's Congressional delegation during the traditional breakfast. All eight of Kentucky's members were on hand, including first-timers Andy Barr (R-6th District) and Thomas Massie (R-4th District).
