Farm Bill Discussions: Rep. Thompson says extending the last legislation is not an option

The Ranking Member of the House Agriculture Committee says extending the 2018 Farm Bill is not an option.

Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson wants the legislation to be reauthorized before it expires next September. He thinks the hold up will be when the House Budget Committee provides a funding baseline, but he stresses only some portions of the bill need a re-write.

At the Farm Progress show, he said one of those areas is Title 1 due to increasing input prices.
