In 2004, CT NOFA had legislative success working with coalitions to pass Climate Change Legislation and to keep the Department of Agriculture separate. CT NOFA is always in favor of Farmland Protection and is a member of the Working Lands Alliance as well as having a representative as vice president of the board of the Connecticut Farmland Trust.

CT NOFA weighed in less successfully on pesticide legislation (not in schools and no selling near food) and GMO labeling (very powerful forces are against this but the new leader of the Senate introduced the GMO labeling bill last year). These last two and the invasive plants issues are hot button topics on the other side for some folks we might like to work with otherwise.
