Lawmakers feel it could be 2025 before a new Farm Bill is signed

As lawmakers continue their work in Washington, the Farm Bill has yet to see any significant action. With the 2018 legislation currently running on a one-year extension, some lawmakers doubt it will happen this calendar year.

House Ag Committee Chair GT Thompson has said he wants the bill to see floor time this month. However, over in the Senate, there was no mention of the Farm Bill on a priority list released by leaders this week, Politico reports. In response, Senator Chuck Grassley has sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, calling for lawmakers to keep moving forward with progress on the Farm Bill.

The current extension expires at the end of September.
