Wyoming Ag Waits on Farm Bill

Wyoming Ag Waits on Farm Bill

Congress is back to work, and agricultural workers are eagerly awaiting the revised version of the Farm Bill. The bill, which is renewed every five years, is set to expire at the end of next month.

Congress has been working on new regulations to serve as the foundation of governmental food guidelines, but as it stands now, the House and Senate are in different places. Chuck Hassebrook with the Center for Rural Affairs has a clear preference for the Senate's version of the bill. He explains why.

Hassebrook said some conservation, disaster, and entrepreneurship initiatives have been severely restricted while waiting for reauthorized funding from Congress.
