Working on the Farm Bill: The concern that keeps being brought up to Rep. Bustos

Farm Bill discussions are currently taking place all across the country and one congresswoman says she has been hearing one issue come up more than others.

Representative Cheri Bustos out of Illinois says everywhere she goes, a farmer brings up the farm safety net. The majority of the Farm Bill is spent on nutrition programs, but it also provides risk protection for the nation’s farmers.

She says these listening sessions allow members of Congress to really hear farmer and rancher concerns. She says getting this policy right is way too important to make any assumptions.
