Extension at the Capitol

On Feb. 3-4, more than 60 Extension stakeholders and staff participated in the University's annual Legislative Action Day. Members of Extension's statewide advisory committees, representatives from county Extension committees, 4-H youth ambassadors and Extension staff learned more about the University's biennial request and then met with their legislators to express their support for Extension and the University.

On Feb. 17, Extension joined the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), and the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), in presenting to the House Ag Finance Committee. The hearing provided an opportunity to speak with legislators on how Extension, CFANS and CVM serve Minnesota and the agriculture community.
