Farm Bill Passage Brings Farmers, Ranchers Added Certainty

Newsroom / December 12, 2018

The following may be attributed to American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall: “Today’s passage of the 2018 farm bill by the House of Representatives, and the Senate’s approval yesterday, is welcome news to America’s farmers and ranchers and the consumers who depend on them for our food, fiber and energy crops.

“Passage means we are one signature away from renewal of risk management tools, foreign market development and environmental stewardship programs that farmers and ranchers need to survive a prolonged and painful downturn in farm income and be sustainable.

“Americans from all walks of life will benefit from this farm bill, including consumers, low-income families, seniors and military veterans.

“We eagerly await the president’s signature on this legislation and we know that Agriculture Secretary Perdue will implement it as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
