2018 Farm Bill Passes with Overwhelming Support in the House

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) The House voted 369 to 47 to pass the 2018 Farm Bill, with representatives compromising on key policies like SNAP work requirements and forest management in order to secure passage. President Temp is expected to sign the Bill.

House Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway says the measure couldn’t come at a better time for the nation’s farm sector. Considering this year’s trade turmoil and market volatility, ag groups like the American Farm Bureau are pleased and relieved to see the Bill finally headed to the President’s desk. 

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, had this to say: “The passage of the 2019 Farm Bill is good news because it provides a strong safety net for farmers and ranchers, who need the dependability and certainty this legislation affords. I commend Congress for bringing the Farm Bill across the finish line.”
