The Midwest is not just the nation’s breadbasket and transportation crossroads, but, also America’s Smartland. The region’s governors offer practical approaches to issues that often serve as catalysts for national strategies and solutions. With regional concerns and objectives in mind, the MGA examines federal programs and policies that impact the Midwest. The MGA focuses its efforts on four main policy areas of agriculture, economic development, energy, and renewing the Midwestern brand.
