South Dakota Congresswoman Wants Farm Bill Done This Year

South Dakota Congresswoman Wants Farm Bill Done This Year

South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem says she’s pushing for resolution on a final farm bill before the end of the year. Even though Congress is on Thanksgiving Break, the four principal negotiators are working to reach an agreement. Noem says she was hoping they’d have it done sooner than December.

She says there are hang ups in both the Nutrition and Commodity titles that need to be worked out.

Noem says she doesn’t want a farm policy in place that allows for manipulation of planting decisions. Noem, Senator John Thune and many farm groups don’t support a farm bill extension. They want the legislation completed.
