Senators Reintroduce Bill Boosting Agriculture Education
Yesterday, U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.), Doug Jones (D-Ala.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), and Chris Coons (D-Del.) announced they have reintroduced legislation in the 116th Congress to update and modernize the charter for the Future Farmers of America (FFA), which will better reflect agriculture education in the 21st Century.
The National FFA Organization’s Federal Charter Amendments Act updates the FFA’s charter to allow for student officer vice presidents to reflect the regional diversity of the United States. Additionally, it provides governing flexibility for national officers in order to reduce operational delays caused by vacant seats. The amendments to the charter will also allow the FFA’s purpose to better match the innovative and hands-on approaches that many agriculture educators are implementing across the country.
