Michigan 1st District resident testifies before U.S. Senate, brings hand-map

Tom Vear, co-owner of Donckers and Delft Bistro in Marquette testifies before the Senate.

When a 1st District resident testifies before the US Senate, we pull out the hand-map! Marquette's Tom Vear testified to the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry as they gathered Michigan perspectives on the Farm Bill.


"The RMAP and IRP included in the Farm Bill are important sources of job creation for rural and low income communities," said Vear. "They support small businesses and help communities thrive."
