A Different Farm Bill Takes Shape
Washington--Major progress on the farm bill this week in both chambers of Congress has fired up Washington policy wonks as well as farmers and ranchers across the countryside.
“We’ve seen another great example of bipartisan legislating on the part of both committees and their leaders,” said Dale Moore, the American Farm Bureau Federation’s chief lobbyist, in a Newsline radio report. “We’re very optimistic we’re going to get a farm bill done this year,” he added. The next farm bill will look much different than the prior three, Moore predicted.
