More than 200 farm groups sent a letter to President Donald Trump last week, asking for projects in rural America to be included in any future infrastructure improvement plans. The Trump administration has hinted at funding an infrastructure improvement package for the nation. Andrew Walmsley, congressional relations director for AFBF, explained in Thursday’s Newsline (February 23, 2017) that infrastructure plans need to include rural America.  

“It’s important for all of us to ring the warning bell that there is a real need in the countryside of America to address these infrastructure concerns,” Walmsley said.
