Senate Ag Leaders Commit to Bipartisan Farm Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., today released the following statement after the House Agriculture Committee released its version of the 2018 Farm Bill.

“We continue to be committed to working on a Farm Bill for all farmers and families. With low commodity prices, worsening conditions in farm country, and unmet needs in communities across the country, we need to get this Farm Bill right. We're working together as quickly as possible to produce a bipartisan bill that can pass the Senate and be enacted into law.”

The Senate Agriculture Committee has held nearly 30 hearings and business meeting during the 115th Congress, including nine hearings on all titles of the 2014 Farm Bill.
