REP. KIND CALLS FOR INCREASED FUNDING FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT WISCONSIN COMMUNITIES

Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind sent a letter to House leadership calling on them to increase funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development programs. President Trump’s budget proposal seeks to impose severe cuts to Rural Development programs. “Many of our rural communities in western and central Wisconsin face tight budgets and struggle to attract private investment, which is why funding for Rural Development programs, which create jobs and build critical infrastructure, is important,” said Rep. Ron Kind. “The place to make budget cuts is not to Rural Development programs that our communities depend on. We need to work together to level the playing field for our residents, farmers, and small businesses in rural Wisconsin.” http://www.thewheelerreport.com/wheeler_docs/files/1004kind.pdf
