One lawmaker says she’s not optimistic the farm bill will get finished in 2024.

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst tells Brownfield she’s disappointed with Senate Ag Committee leadership.

“My finger will point directly at Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow,” Ernst said Tuesday morning. “She really is dragging her feet on this and she is not willing to budge. We’ve all provided feedback and we’re trying to collaborate on the ag committee, and yet we see no movement from the chairwoman.”

The Iowa Republican says there isn’t enough support for farmers and ranchers in the current proposal.
