House Republicans push for timely farm bill

Republican leaders in the U.S. House say they are committed to getting the farm bill passed on time.

Prior to a farm bill listening session at the World Ag Expo on Tuesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said 2023 will be a critical year for agriculture. “This is the year we do the farm bill,” McCarthy said.

House Agriculture Committee Chair Glenn “GT” Thompson says he’s ready to work across the aisle with lawmakers. “My commitment is that we pass a 2023 Farm Bill on time,” he said.

Thompson says the 2023 Farm Bill is vital to the rural economy. “Without a robust rural economy,” Thompson said, “people all across America, starting with those living in big cities, are going to wake up in the cold, dark, and hungry.”

The current farm bill expires in September.
