Ag Groups Urging Congress for Farm Bill Resolution
“Encouraging them to approach the appropriations process in a bipartisan manner and do everything they can to avert a government shutdown. Not only do we need to keep the government moving, but just as important, the longer we delay this current process, the less time there is to consider the important piece of legislation called the farm bill, which expires in less than a few days.”
Kieffer says their message to Congress is simple.
“Urging Congress to find a bipartisan path forward that avoids the government shutdown and addresses federal government funding without additional delay, because we need to get to a farm bill conversation. There are very few days left in the congressional calendar this year, and we certainly want to get a farm bill conversation underway, and a farm bill passed before a presidential election cycle starts in 2024.”
