Conklin’s resolution to recognize the Pennsylvania State Grange reported out of committee

(Feb 22, 2024)

“Following the Civil War, Pennsylvanians from rural communities united to form the Grange, allowing them to advocate for rural communities, as well as the agricultural industry,” Conklin said. “Today, we have more than 170 chapters of the Grange and approximately 5,700 members. Thanks to these members uniting, we’re able to advance policies that make investments in rural communities and the agriculture industry, one of Pennsylvania’s largest industries. As a sixth-degree member of the Grange and as state representative for the 77th Legislative District, I will work to ensure that we continue to uplift the Grange, rural communities, and the agriculture industry.” Read more
