Vilsack to Address Western Governors’ Association Annual Conference

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will travel to Idaho for a series of events next week, including addressing the Western Governors’ Association Annual Conference. The events are related to the Biden administration efforts to build climate resilience and recover from the impact of wildfires. USDA says Vilsack will visit a U.S. Forest Service tree nursery in Boise, Idaho, on July 25, and announce USDA efforts on climate mitigation and significant investments in reforestation and wildfire risk reduction funded in part by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. On July 26, Vilsack will deliver a keynote address at the Western Governors’ Association Annual Conference. In his address, he will speak about challenges facing western communities and how state and federal governments can partner to address these challenges. Before his keynote, Secretary Vilsack will participate in a press conference with the governors in attendance, where he will discuss Bipartisan Infrastructure Law programs that will help communities reduce risk and build resilience against wildfire.
