South Dakota Ag Secretary Congratulates Coalition For Pushing For Farm Bill

The South Dakota Back The Farm Bill Coalition is on the right track calling on Congress to pass a comprehensive farm bill.  That’s according to South Dakota State Agriculture Secretary Lucas Lentsch says the effects of not having  farm legislation in place could have devastating impacts.

Lentsch says Congress needs to look at the issue from a broader perspective rather than getting caught up in partisan bickering.

Lentsch says he’s proud of the way coalition members came together to fight for this needed legislation.
