Legislative Toolkit

URGE LEGISLATIVE OFFICIALS TO INCLUDE TARGETED RELIEF FOR THE SPECIALTY CROP INDUSTRY
03.31.20

Help assure that mushrooms are adequately included in the specialty crop and produce provisions of the CARES Act administered by USDA. Now is the time for legislators to hear from those within and affiliated with the mushroom industry. 

AMI has created this toolkit below that includes resources to reach out to congressional representatives and request that mushrooms be included in upcoming relief packages. In addition to members contacting congressional offices, distribute these resources to your local Chambers of Commerce, city/township officials and other local officials. The more voices, the better.
