The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) public policy team advocates for agricultural retailers' best interests at the federal level. ARA's registered lobbyists constantly monitor agencies, regulations and legislation that could impact agribusinesses and their farmer customers.

Each year, ARA membership decides on a new set of policy issues the association will focus on with elected officials and key regulatory agencies in Washington, D.C. The established set of policy issues typically drive discussions during the annual ARA Legislative Fly-In.
