I really can't say enough about what you people do here. Literally. Most people have no idea what goes on in here.

The Agency of Invasive Species is the federal agency tasked with monitoring and mitigating threat of invasive species, particularly weeds. Founded by President Carter in 1977, AIS serves under the Bureau of Risk Management of the Department of Farm Services within USDA. The Agency has branch offices in many regions of the country (the regions with the largest, highest-funded, and heavily-staffed offices can be found HERE and HERE) and employs [figure redacted] workers.
