A new Congress with slim, cantankerous majorities confronts must-pass legislation. State legislature's record revenues last year continue as a larger than usual number of tax changes are considered, including those affecting agriculture exemptions. And the MOU between John Deere and the American Farm Bureau Federation is a game changer playing out in real-time across the country.

This FREE webinar is brought to you by Farm Equipment magazine and the North American Equipment Dealers Assn. (NAEDA) .
