NFU Official Says Movement On Funding Bill Positive For Farm Bill

Wednesday’s move by the Senate to move forward on funding the government bodes well for Congress getting moving on completing a farm bill. That’s according to National Farmers Union’s Vice President of Government Relations Chandler Goule.

Goule says even though the present farm bill expires in just a few days at the end of the month, there is still time to complete farm legislation before ag programs are seriously impacted.

He is hoping the House leadership will get moving and appoint farm bill conferees and get the legislation done as quickly as possible as producers need certainty.
