  • Following the support of over 202,000 letters written to the FCC in support of rural programming, the Agricultural News & Rural Content Act of 2019 (H.R. 2682) is now introduced in Congress. But much more support and effort are needed to push it across the finish line. The bill needs as many co-sponsors as possible, and we ask that all viewers contact their Congressman, asking them to support H.R. 2682 – The Agricultural News & Rural Content Act of 2019.
