CHS on Farm Bill: An extension provides more time to get it right

CHS says the extension of the 2018 Farm Bill allows more time to make sure the legislation is done right.

“An extension and a longer term extension to give farmers and businesses some certainty for the next year is is definitely a good thing, and I still think that we will get a five year bill done at some point, you know, no farm bill is easy, but I do think that there’s the leadership in the House and Senate to get something done and CHS will be there advocating on behalf of our owners. Until that happens,” said Will Stafford.

Stafford says when he talks to farmers, the overwhelming majority say protecting crop insurance is the most important part of the Farm Bill.
