Friends of Agricultural Statistics and Analysis Sign-On Letter Opposing USDA re-organization and re-alignment of the Economic Research Service
On August 9, 2018, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) proposed to move the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) out of Washington, DC and the ERS from the research arm of USDA to the Office of the Chief Economist. The letter below to Congress urges the ERS be kept in the Washington, DC area and in the research arm of USDA to maintain the ERS as the premiere agricultural economics research it currently is and to maintain the quality, credibility, and timeliness of its products.

To express your concern for the NIFA relocation, see, for example this sign-on letter:
