Honor Flight, Coffee with Cathy, and Farm Bill Listening Session: Rep. McMorris Rodgers’ Day in Eastern Washington

Apr 17, 2017

WALLA WALLA, WA (April 17, 2017) — Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) had a full schedule today in our community meeting with groups and citizens on a variety of issues, hearing their concerns, and updating everyone on what she is working on.

She began the day at Spokane International Airport where she greeted WWII, Korean, and Vietnam War veterans as they embarked on a trip to the nation’s capital as part of the Inland Northwest Honor Flight. As she said on her Twitter, Inland Northwest Honor Flight is such an amazing way to honor our veterans for everything they have done to keep our country safe and free.

Then, Rep. McMorris Rodgers hosted a meeting with local agriculture bankers to discuss issues facing our farming communities and financing for local farmers in Eastern Washington.

Later in the morning, Rep. McMorris Rodgers hosted another Coffee with Cathy event. Guests who have reached out to request a meeting with the Congresswoman were invited to sit down, in a productive and conversational environment, to discuss the big issues facing Eastern Washington and our country. These events are just another way Rep. McMorris Rodgers is connecting directly with folks in Eastern Washington to hear their thoughts.

In the afternoon, the Congresswoman made her way down to Colfax to host a Farm Bill Listening Session. The Farm Bill is the most important legislation impacting our agriculture communities. As Congress prepares to move forward with the Farm Bill in the next year, it’s important to hear directly from people in Eastern Washington about the issues facing them, their farms, and their families.

Tomorrow, Rep. McMorris Rodgers will be in Walla Walla, Colfax, and Pullman hosting more meetings to hear the thoughts and concerns of people all across Eastern Washington.
