Snapshot of the House Ag Appropriations Subcommittee 2023 spending plan

The House Ag Appropriations Subcommittee has outlined its spending plan for next year.

The new appropriations bill includes $27 billion in discretionary spending, which is $2.3 billion more than last year, and $3.9 billion is allotted for ag research. The Farm Service Agency would get $1.2 billion, which is almost $50 million more than last year. Discretionary spending for nutrition programs is set at $6.8 billion, much of which is allocated for WIC.

Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin told Brownfield Ag News, “We worked across party lines to increase our investments in rural development and conservation that support the long-term health of our working lands.”
