Colorado Producers Have More Access

Colorado Producers – You Have More Access to a House Agriculture Committee Member Than You Might Realize

Congresswoman Yadira Caraveo, representing Colorado’s 8th District, serves on the House Agricultural Committee. She is a ranking member of the Subcommittee on Commodity Markets, Digital Assets, and Rural Development. She also serves on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. In a recent email, our friend, Scot Dutcher, Weld County Farm Bureau President, has asked that Weld County Farm Bureau Members and other Coloradans take advantage of this great opportunity to provide direct feedback regarding the Farm Bill and other issues important to farmers and ranchers. He also communicated that Representative Caraveo personally requested help from producers in understanding agricultural issues. We need to take advantage of this invitation to offer guidance so Rep Caraveo can make informed decisions on critical votes that impact us all.

Representative Caraveo has three offices, one in Washington DC and two in Colorado, located in Northglenn and Greeley. You have an opportunity to either call one of Rep. Caraveo’s offices and speak with an aide directly or to submit your comment on her website via a comment form.
