Political decisions have a big impact on the agricultural industry from Farm Bill legislation to estate tax to child nutrition to marketing programs. The USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council and the American Pulse Association are dedicated to addressing these issues, traveling to Washington, D.C, several times a year with an extended, industry-wide mission in February to give voice to the needs of the pulse industry (i.e. dry pea, lentil, chickpea, and dry beans) in meetings with members of Congress and government agencies.
If you would like to be a part of this education effort, please contact the industry office. For more information on the policy stance of the dry pea, lentil, and chickpea industry, download our Policy Positions below.
