Orange, TX — Today, Sen. Robert Nichols, in partnership with the Texas Agrilife Extension, conducted a round table discussion with agriculture leaders from Orange County.
"Today's meeting was an opportunity to hear directly from those working in agriculture, an industry on which we all depend," said Nichols. "I am proud to represent a district which has so many agriculture leaders who are leading the way in service and innovation."
Participants included representatives from key commodity agriculture groups including: livestock, citrus, timber, and local farmers.
The goal of the event was for Nichols to learn ways he can help solve problems faced by the agriculture community and to better represent its needs in the Texas Senate. Nichols serves on several legislative committees including the Senate Natural Resources Committee which addresses many issues affecting agriculture.
