Biden, Vilsack to meet Wisconsin farmers Tuesday
President Biden and Ag Secretary Vilsack will be on a Wisconsin farm next Tuesday. Congressman Ron Kind tells Brownfield it is always good to welcome the President of the United States in his home area. “It’s going to give us an opportunity to get to a family farm, talk about the Build Back Better plan, what it means for rural Wisconsin and rural America for our family farmers in particular, and it will be a good opportunity to talk to him about the issues we’re wrestling with.”
Kind says the location and details of the President’s visit have not been announced yet. “East of La Crosse, the Sparta area (is where) we’re looking at right now. Obviously, the White House and Secret Service have to run some traps for us, but we’re hoping to announce a host family farm soon.”
Kind says it is important for Biden and Vilsack to get feedback from farmers and others about his Build Back Better plan.
