Palmesano Working On Pro-Farm Bill

September 23, 2015
 
 
Assemblyman Phil Palmesano is glad that the governor is showing support for the Farm Food Bank Bill. The legislation is a tax credit for farmers who donate to food banks or emergency relief funds.
 
“This bill is a common-sense, community-oriented initiative,” said Palmesano. “This legislation helps food banks access nutrititious, fresh food and incentivizes farmers to provide it. It’s a win-win. It would be special if we could get the bill signed into law during September to raise awareness for Hunger Action Month.”
