RICHLAND, WA - Senators from across eastern Washington were in Richland today for a farm hall meeting.

To address issues with our local agricultural community Senator Sharon Brown of Kennewick and senator Judy Warnick of Moses Lake hosted the event at The Reach today along with representatives from state farming leaders.

Topics today focused on what farmers are facing in the future including water usage, droughts, summer fires, wildlife and diseases along with marketing for local farmers.

Senator Warnick says all these topics made for a great first discussion.

Sen. Judy Warnick, R-Moses Lake said "This is a great venue, if we can continue this, maybe on an annual or semi-annual basis, it will become more important. So to me, it was well worth it."

Warnick says they are planning more farm hall meetings in the future no word yet when those will be held.
