NFU Leader Pleased Senate Pushing House On Farm Bill Conference

NFU Leader Pleased Senate Pushing House On Farm Bill Conference

Late last week the Senate sent their version of the farm bill over to the House so the process could get going on conferencing the farm legislation. National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson sees that as progress although he’s not surprised it’s moving slowly.

Johnson says it’s a tough measure to conference because the Senate passed a comprehensive farm bill with a nutrition title while the House passed one without a nutrition measure so that work still needs to get done.

Johnson is still hoping the House and Senate will get a full five year farm bill done before the September deadline.
