One House Ag Committee Member fears the Inflation Reduction Act will prolong Farm Bill discussions

A member of the House Ag Committee is worried the Inflation Reduction Act could challenge ag policy.

Representative Rodney Davis out of Illinois is specifically worried about the Farm Bill. He fears the conservation funding in the new IRA will lead policy makers to believe the topic does not need any more support.

He says the inflation package will not be good for American agriculture in the end, and expects it will prolong Farm Bill discussions.
