For Immediate Release: Lt. Governor Dan Forest’s statement on The NC Farm Act of 2018 (Senate Bill 711)

“Governor Cooper needs to sign the NC Farm Bill now. It is abundantly clear that the North Carolina farming community is under attack from out-of-state organizations who are using the tactic of repeated lawsuits against farmers to drive them out of business. Agriculture is our state’s number one industry and we must not stand by and watch this happen. Either we stand with the farmers or stand with the lawyers trying to put them out of business. I choose to stand with the farmers.”
