Rural Council to Recommend Policies to Boost Rural Economies

On June 9, 2011 President Obama signed an executive order creating a White House Rural Council to address rural economic potentials as well as challenges.  The Council is headed by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and includes all the federal agencies.  The Council will coordinate its policy development through the Domestic Policy Council and the National Economic Council.  While most of the initiative deals with agricultural interests, one of the stated goals is to (d) identify and facilitate rural economic opportunities associated with energy development, outdoor recreation, and other conservation related activities.  To view the press release and get more details go to http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/uploads/2011ruralcouncil_eo_rel.pdf
