The listening tour is an ongoing effort by Donnelly to hear from Hoosier farmers and producers about their priorities for the upcoming Farm Bill. Donnelly kicked off his Farm Bill Listening Tour by meeting with the Indiana Farm Bureau Farm Bill Task Force in Indianapolis in January.  In February, he held a listening session with the Indiana Soybean Alliance and the Indiana Corn Growers Association at the Steinbarger Farm in Edinburgh.  Through his work on the Senate Agriculture Committee, Donnelly has worked tirelessly to advocate for Hoosier farmers and rural communities. As part of the previous Farm Bill, Donnelly successfully pushed several measures that were signed into law in 2014 as part of the bipartisan Farm Bill.
