Several state farm bureaus are traveling to the nation’s capital this week calling for farm bill passage. 

“It’s forceful to have folks on the hill have a presence here directly.” “There’s nowhere for Congress to hide.”

American Farm Bureau Federation’s Ryan Yates tells Brownfield by the end of May every state farm bureau will have traveled to D.C. to plead with lawmakers to move on a new farm bill.

“One of the critically important reasons to get a farm bill done now is it is going to be more difficult for Congress to execute a $1.5 trillion spending bill at the same time that they’re looking to move tax reforms and tax cuts,” he says.
