Working Hard for North Dakota: August 2016 in Review
This past month I traveled across North Dakota to meet with local leaders, advocates, professionals, and community members to talk about the issues that matter to them most. Together, we worked toward solutions to some of our state’s top challenges — from promoting better housing opportunity in Indian Country, to implementing an all-hands-on-deck approach to our state’s opioid addiction and abuse crisis, to mapping out with farmers and producers in the field ways we can strengthen the Farm Bill in 2018.
Keep scrolling for highlights from this month, and follow the links to learn more about the many different issues I worked to address in North Dakota this August. I look forward to bringing what I discussed with folks across the state back go Washington, D.C. this fall to make sure the voices of rural America resonate in the halls of Congress.
