Supervisors tout rural needs in Washington, D.C. trip

Via the East Valley Times:
Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) Officers, Members, and staff met with key federal policymakers and staff in Washington, D.C. [last] week to highlight current issues impacting California’s rural counties. The federal priorities for rural California include Federal Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT), wildfire suppression funding, reauthorization of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (SRS), and transportation infrastructure.

“RCRC’s annual trip to Washington, D.C. provides our organization and California’s rural counties the opportunity to advocate with a collective voice before our Nation’s policymakers on federal issues critical to our communities,” said Bob Williams, RCRC Chair and Tehama County Supervisor. “It’s crucial that our federal leaders understand the impacts national policies and programs have upon small, rural counties.”
