Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) strongly supports the 2018 Farm Bill and was pleased to see it pass through Congress with strong bipartisan support. It will now move to the President’s desk for his approval.
“The 2018 Farm Bill will provide a safety net for Minnesota farmers and ranchers over the next five years by providing comprehensive provisions that support production agriculture, including measures related to risk management, crop insurance and programs that facilitate market development,” said MFBF President Kevin Paap. “During times of financial and emotional stress, farmers and ranchers need the tools provided through the farm bill that will help to weather this storm.”
MFBF thanks Ranking Member Collin Peterson’s for his leadership in completing the farm bill, as well as the Minnesota Congressional delegation who supported this legislation which passed in the Senate yesterday 87-13 and today in the House 369-47. Thank you Senators Klobuchar and Smith and Representatives Paulsen, McCollum, Emmer, Peterson and Nolan for your support.
