Hinson blasts McCarthy’s ousting, says farm bill work continues

A U.S. Representative from Iowa says work on the 2023 Farm Bill continues despite the recent chaos and dysfunction in Congress.

Republican Ashley Hinson tells Brownfield she had a meeting with House Ag Committee Chairman Glenn “GT” Thompson on Thursday. “What I can tell you is that we are still moving forward with the farm bill,” she said Friday morning. “Actually, some of the conversations (Thursday) were about some of the policies we have bipartisan agreement on and trying to figure out the mechanisms for paying for those.”

She says the House needs to get back to its policy priorities. “Kevin McCarthy was a great speaker,” Hinson said. “He delivered results for us and I do think he should still be our speaker. The only ones who suffer from this are hardworking people in Iowa and across the country. Not the politicians playing games up here.”

Hinson says she remains optimistic a farm bill can happen soon.
