WELCOME to the USA Rice Federation’s Government Affairs Web site. The USA Rice Federation pursues government policies that will enhance rice industry profitability.

The Government Affairs Committee recommends legislative and regulatory policies to the USA Rice Federation Board. Once adopted, we advocate for these policies at the federal and state levels. Federal and state laws and regulations affect our members, their families, and their businesses every day. For this reason, we are dedicated to working closely with government to ensure that legislative and regulatory issues affecting our members are fair and reasonable.

Our Government Affairs staff work with U.S. representatives, U.S. senators and their staffs.  They also work with U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Trade Representative, Environmental Protection Agency and other federal and state officials.  Farm, trade, environment, conservation, nutrition, and energy policies are some major issues that they address regularly.

Other services include communicating through the USA Rice Daily and periodic news releases about USA Rice Federation government-related activities.

We're proud of our industry and its contributions to our communities, states, and the nation.  We're pleased to have you visit our web site and hope you find it informative and useful.  Please visit frequently.
