On this episode of Need to Know, a podcast produced by The Wilson Center, Andrew Walmsley, Senior Director of Government Affairs at the American Farm Bureau Federation, discusses expectations for the 2023 Farm Bill and how it might address changes and challenges the agriculture community has faced during the past several years. Walmsley says that if lawmakers get it right, the legislation can help farmers adapt and provide them with the security that will allow them to maintain a competitive advantage in a continuously evolving environment.
