With an objective of working Together to Impact Immigration Reform, ACA, CEQA, Water Rights, and More, UnitedAg is inviting members and guests to join them for an update and open forum on some of the most important topics to agribusiness.

“As Immigration Reform and ACA heat up, our executive team and BOD executive committee have just returned from meetings with key legislators in Washington D.C. representing California agriculture’s interests. In California it’s a critical legislative time and we’re likewise tracking and making agriculture’s input heard on a number of bills that are working their way through the Assembly and Senate that will impact our members and their businesses as well” stated Richard Schmidt, President and CEO. “Of special concern to UnitedAg and the farmers of the state is the direction the state will pursue to assure our farmers have adequate water supplies in the years to come.  One of UnitedAg’s top state priorities is to assure the State Water Bond and the Bay Delta Water Plan will focus on more water storage.”

Find out why UnitedAg is now more optimistic about the future of issues such as immigration reform and health care reform and their potential impact on California’s agricultural employers.
