Did you know that Yuma, Arizona supplies 90-95% of all the lettuce consumed by the United States in the winter months? On December 11th and 12th, I joined several other legislators on a bus trip to Yuma, Arizona. We were given presentations on water resources, cattle ranching, and vegetable growing. We toured one of the largest cattle ranches in the United States; a lettuce field; the Dole salad packaging plant; and a Citrus packaging plant.
Note: No taxpayer money was used for this trip.
