Kentucky Farm Bureau Statement on Government Shutdown

Posted on Jan 15, 2019

"The closure of government agencies is creating uncertainty for farmers in Kentucky and around the country. The current shutdown prohibits farmers from securing needed loans, disaster and trade assistance, and will delay the implementation of the recently passed farm bill. Kentucky Farm Bureau is watching this issue closely, making sure the needs of farmers are understood in Washington. We urge Congress and the Administration to work together to reopen the government as soon as possible and bring back certainty to farmers during this difficult farm economy."
