Dana McKinney, President and Kenni Crane, KASCOE Legislative Chair share this positive news with members:

Merry Christmas NASCOE Members! IMPORTANT FSA BUDGET INFORMATION ATTACHED

I can't think of any better news that we could possibly be sharing with our FSA family at this time! 

NASCOE's hard work and dedication to our grassroots efforts have proved successful, as you can see in the following documents. 


Please make sure that you spread this news far and wide with every FSA employee and with our county committee members. 

Merry Christmas!

NASCOE Visits DC; discusses proposed office closures

Posted on March 28, 2014 at 5:37 PM Comments comments (107)
Message from Donny Green, Southeast Area Legislative Chair:

CLICK HERE for a summary of NASCOE's visit to DC this week. 


The above link will take you to the archived video of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Committee Hearing on FSA's FY15 Budget. This was a very revealing hearing and certainly should concern all of us and encourage us to become engaged with our grassroots efforts to develop and enhance relationships with our legislators at home. I hope each of you are working to get me your key contacts for our grassroots efforts that I sent you earlier this week. Remember, I need this information back no later than April 4. 

We should be proud of what NASCOE is doing and we should be optimistic about the news of the proposed 3.3% pay increase for federal employees under legislation proposed this week by Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA). Always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. 

Lastly, I hope everyone is making plans to attend the SEA Rally in Little Rock, Ark. April 9-14. I know the Arkansas bunch will be serving up some excellent hospitality and I have learned today that some DC Management folks will be in attendance and this should be an excellent opportunity to hear their responses to our concerns. I regret that I will not be able to attend due to some training schedule conflicts, but I Kevin Wooten, NASCOE Legislative Co-Chairperson, will be in attendance and will give everyone some legislative update reports. 

Thanks for all you do!

Attached is an article concerning NASCOE's push for COF closure language in the Farm Bill.  Unsure if the language made it in there or not -- but in searching the 900+ page document, it doesn't seem to be.
