Farm Bureau members and lawmakers discussed several other topics including improving broadband service in the area.
The Pennsylvania Broadband Development Authority, created by the General Assembly in 2021, should help.
“We are fortunate that Brandon Carson has been named director of the broadband authority. It is important that we have resources coming to central Pennsylvania. We want our fair share, not all of the money going to the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas,” Joyce said.
“The commission created by the General Assembly has to push out dollars in a way it makes sense. We need to make sure farmers and rural Pennsylvania receive their internet service. We need to make sure the money is used in the most efficient manner,” state Rep. Rich Irvin, R-Huntingdon, said.
