Farm bill challenges ahead


An ag policy expert says passing a new farm bill could be just as challenging for lawmakers as passing a government spending bill.

Bart Fischer with Texas A&M University tells Brownfield politics are getting in the way and “it’s a good indication of the challenges we’ll be up against with respect to the farm bill. There’s not one on the horizon at this point.”

Fischer says there hasn’t been much publicly shared on the new farm bill yet as lawmakers are still working through the details and funding remains a challenge.
