Senate Ag Chair Wants House To Send Farm Bill Over

Senate Ag Chair Wants House To Send Farm Bill Over

 

Monday, Senate Ag Chair Debbie Stabenow says her chamber is ready to get moving on conferencing a farm bill. She says they’re waiting for House leaders to send the measure over so the work can begin. Stabenow says the final package will need to be put together in a bi partisan fashion like the Senate did and not like the House recently did when they approved a farm only piece of legislation.

Stabenow says there’s a lot of work to do and time is short so the House needs to get moving to avoid expiration of the present farm bill.

Stabenow says she’s spoken with House Ag Leaders Frank Lucas and Colin Peterson. She says she won’t support any more farm bill extensions.
