This week, RCRC Chair Rex Bohn (Humboldt), RCRC Vice Chair Randy Hanvelt (Tuolumne) and RCRC Immediate Past Chair Bob Williams (Tehama) were joined by RCRC Board Members Kevin Cann (Mariposa) and Lee Adams (Sierra) and RCRC legislative staff for the National Association of Counties’ (NACo) 2018 Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C.  The annual event brings more than 2,000 elected and appointed county officials from around the country to the nation’s capital to focus on federal policy issues that impact our counties.  

RCRC’s Officers, Board Members and legislative staff focused their advocacy efforts on the 2018 Farm Bill, rural infrastructure and broadband, wildfire and forestry, Federal Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and Secure Rural Schools (SRS).  A visual representation of a handful of these meetings can be found on RCRC’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
