Re: meetings with lawyers on the lawsuit

24 Jun

I went to the meeting that the lawyers representing the plaintiffs vs OSpray held to update independent growers on this lawsuit. Pretty interesting stuff. I’m not going to get into the details, but suffice it to say, you had to be there. But I will post the firm’s website regarding the suit, so you can follow it here

Wondering who voted which way for TPA?

You can check out your congressman’s vote here
And here
Looks like they will do a revote on Tuesday. If you care about exports, and we do (come on, exports are the way out of oversupply!!) let your congressman know that we support this bill.  Especially if they already voted yes…they need to know we are with them in this!
