Eight Hagerman FFA members took part in the FFA Day in Santa Fe on February 7th. Members were able to tour the capitol, meet with other FFA members and visit with local lobbyists and legislators. This was an especially exciting day for FFA as House Bill 319 to increase funding for Agricultural Education in New Mexico was passed by the House Agriculture Committee and will be heard later this session by the House Finance Committee.
