Midterm elections will have a big role in the next Farm Bill

Researchers at CoBank say that this year’s midterm elections could have a significant impact on planning for the next Farm Bill.
The reason, it all comes down to political party.

When lawmakers return to Washington they have just nine months to get the Farm Bill passed and while a number of projects are on the table, priorities differ by party.

CoBank says that ultimately, the Senate will have the upper hand when it comes to debate, but either way, lawmakers will be signing off on a bill that will impact agriculture for years to come.
