Farmers hoping for farm bill passage in wake of House flip

November 08, 2018

For farmers and ranchers, the flip in the House comes with new concerns with passing a farm bill, already past the 2014 law's Sept. 30 expiration date. "We need to get a farm bill passed before the new Congress is seated," says Abbott Myers, Dundee, Miss., rice and soybean farmer and Mississippi Land Bank chairman. "They have a limited number of days to complete it, and they have a lot going on."
