Henderson County Farmers Get Aid in State Budget

Sen. Chuck Edwards, (R-Henderson), said in a news release that the 2019-21 state budget would provide relief to Henderson County farmers. Five other counties — Buncombe, Transylvania, Haywood, Polk, and Rutherford — could also receive financial assistance.

Earlier this year, Edwards authored Senate Bill 268-Ag Disaster Fund/Excessive Rain & Flooding, which was written to include Western North Carolina counties in the state’s disaster relief efforts initiated after Hurricanes Matthew and Florence.
