On Not Closing FSA Offices (How Congress Works)

FSA decided not to close 5 county offices in NY (including my birth county). Strange--while I've noted that other States have modified their plans, I think this is the biggest reversal I've seen.

(Of course, the article has this note: [Congressman] "Hinchey, who is a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, has been fighting the FSA's proposal to close offices in New York, as well as across the country, since the agency provides critical services to local farmers and offers personalized attention and advice on an array of federal agricultural programs.")
