Grassroots Advocacy

Legislative Action Center

The Irrigation Association is currently updating its Legislative Action Center. Please check back in September 2019 for information on how to advocate for your company and the industry.

Attend IA’s Washington, D.C., Fly-in

The fly-in brings industry leaders together each year to promote efficient irrigation and directly advocate on our industry’s behalf with Congress and the Administration. This legislative conference provides a forum for IA members to speak with one voice about the topics that really matter to the irrigation industry, including the farm bill, WaterSense, water-use research and other issues.
