Nunn lauds House work on farm bill


U.S. Congressman Zach Nunn says he’s optimistic House lawmakers can pass Chairman Glenn “GT” Thompson’s $1.5 trillion farm bill.

“We all agree that we’ve got to have farm in the farm bill and that so far has moved forward with broad support despite some folks from maybe some coastal states who really wanted more expansion of a SNAP program that was well beyond anything we’ve done historically.”

But the Iowa Republican tells Brownfield, “We know that if we don’t get it through the House, the Senate and to the president’s desk by August, then we’re going to be looking at a short-term extension here for the farm bill.
