PorkPAC is the political action committee of the National Pork Producers Council. It allows the U.S. pork industry to educate and support candidates at the federal level whose views coincide with the interests of pork producers, processors, marketers, consumers, and the pork business. A financially strong PorkPAC counters well-funded opposition group activities by strengthening NPPC’s grassroots, communications, and public policy programs.
PAC contributions leverage the pork industry’s stake in the political process, increasing visibility and access to candidates who share industry views on legislative and regulatory policies. The pork industry’s credibility is also enhanced as lawmakers are held accountable for their actions.
Contributing to PorkPAC gives producers an active and unified voice in the political process, timely information on political activities in Washington, D.C., and the potential for interaction with key members of Congress, the administration, and federal agencies.
