Congressman Johnson ushers House bills to amend FFA charter, repeal penalties for minor wrongdoing
Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) managed two bills that passed the House of Representatives by voice vote on Tuesday.
The first bill, H.R. 439, the “National FFA Organization’s Federal Charter Amendment’s Act,” is a bipartisan effort to update and modernize the Federal Charter for the National FFA Organization (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America). The bill updates the FFA’s charter to make it more consistent with the modern organization, and to provide additional flexibility as it looks toward the future.
