The House of Representatives followed the Senate this week by passing Farm Bill legislation 369-47 on Wednesday, 12/12. The Senate passed the legislation with 87-13 on Tuesday, 12/11.
The farm bill now goes to President Trump’s desk, who is expected to sign the legislation into law.
LMA supports the passage of the farm bill, and is thankful to congressional leadership for giving our membership, farmers, and ranchers certainty heading into the new year. In addition, LMA is also happy to see language directing USDA to perform a feasibility study on a Dealer Statutory Trust.
If LMA membership have questions about the Farm Bill and what it means for them, they are encouraged to reach out to the Government and Industry Affairs Team.
