Farm Bill Road Map: Sen. Pete Ricketts will use his background to craft the bill

A freshman senator says he is ready for the challenge of creating the Farm Bill and touts his background as governor of Nebraska.

Senator Pete Ricketts tells Brownfield Ag News his experience leading the ag state can help engage colleagues who might be skeptical about certain Farm Bill titles. Ricketts says he is focused on food security and changes to SNAP including job coaching to families currently using those benefits.

He also says providing more support through market access could help develop markets in the EU.
