NFU Pleased Conferees Pressing Ahead On The Farm Bill

NFU Pleased Conferees Pressing Ahead On The Farm Bill

 

House and Senate conferees are working to try and reach agreement this week on a framework for the farm bill. National Farmers Union’s Vice President of Government Relations Chandler Goule says his group is pleased to see the progress but is keeping in front of the conferees pushing their farm bill priorities.

House Ag Chair Frank Lucas says they will try everything they can to see about staying to work on the farm bill after the House and Senate are scheduled to leave for Thanksgiving Break. Goule says it’ll take that type of persistence to get the job done as time is running out.

Goule says his group continues to work with conferees including Senators Amy Klobuchar and John Hoeven and Representative Kristi Noem to get their priorities approved in the final bill.
