From the Desk of Whitney

  Yesterday I appeared before the House Agriculture Committee and requested introduction of a bill to extend the CSA season from ending on March 31 to April 30.  If passed, the bill would not become effective until July 1, so this is a 2019 season issue.  There are ways to get a bill into the statute book sooner, but even under the best of circumstances, I doubt we could get this done in time for 2018.

  Also attached is a WP&T bill to increase a number of fees.  I think this may find some challenges in the legislature, as many of the increases are 100% or more.
