U.S. Senator Mark Kirk and U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis will meet Tuesday with Senator Kirk's Agriculture Advisory Board in Edwardsville to discuss the state of agriculture in Illinois.

Kirk said the agricultural industry is the largest employer in the Illinois economy and its importance cannot be overstated. He established the Agriculture Advisory Board to identify the impact of public policy on our farms.

The meeting hosted by the Illinois Republicans will take place at 10:15 a.m. in the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville National Corn to Ethanol Center Conference Room at 400 University Park Drive.

Kirk is expected to also comment about recent developments concerning Scott Air Force Base operations during the meeting.
