Greetings, FASA Members and Friends,

We will be submitting the Friends of Agricultural Statistics and Analysis outside witness testimony (OWT) next week on Monday, April 1.

Please take the opportunity to sign the letter on behalf of your organization here.* The FY20 letter requests $87 M in funding for ERS and $180 M for NASS. If you have questions, do not hesitate to reply to this email. One of the co-chairs will answer your inquiry. We’ve included a list of those organizations that are currently on the letter.

Also, we plan to meet with ag. appropriations staff next Thursday or Friday, please let us know if you are interested in attending.

Thank you in advance for any consideration.
