Statement from KFB President Mark Haney on Farm Bill passagePosted on Aug 2, 2018
The Farm Bill is important to farm families and rural communities in Kentucky and across the country. It is critical to the agriculture industry to get this piece of legislation finalized and on the President’s desk. The process of bringing the House and Senate versions together is about to begin.
Kentucky Farm Bureau is grateful to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for making the passage of the Farm Bill a priority and choosing to appoint himself to the conference committee. The Commonwealth will be well-represented with Congressman James Comer also serving.
I would like to thank these agriculture champions for their continued support of this bill and for their commitment to the hard-working farmers who provide the valuable food and fiber needed in our state, this nation, and around the world.
