NCGA Supports House Farm Only Legislation

NCGA Supports House Farm Only Legislation

Thursday the U.S.House voted 216 to 208 along party lines to approve a farm only farm bill. National Corn Growers earlier joined over 500 ag groups opposing split of the farm bill. NCGA then decided to ask for passage. President Pam Johnson says the main goal is to get farm legislation approved and signed despite misgivings with leaving nutrition out of the bill.

Johnson says House leaders who wanted the legislation split promised they can get a final package approved but believes it will be a challenge to get it conferenced with the Senate and signed by the President.

Johnson says the goal remains getting farm legislation over the goal line and help out to producers.
