A leader with American Farm Bureau says education on ag issues and the 2023 Farm Bill process is critical as there are more than 200 new members of Congress.

Andrew Walmsley, senior director of government affairs, says farm bureau members have an opportunity.

“Legislators need to be educated. With 260 new lawmakers that were not here for the 2018 Farm Bill, there is a ripe opportunity to tell agriculture’s story.”

When asked about the price tag of the bill, he said legislators will have to figure that out.
