National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition Announces Introduction of Local Food Bill

Senator Brown of Ohio and Representative Pingree of Maine introduced a comprehensive bill Local Farms, Food, and Jobs Act for the 2012 Farm Bill. The bill addresses local and regional food system development, supports family farms, invests in communities, and improves access to healthy food by revising and expanding existing federal farm programs.
