AFBF President Commends Senate for Passing Farm Bill, Looks Forward to Implementation

AFBF President Commends Senate for Passing Farm Bill, Looks Forward to Implementation
Following Senate passage of the 2014 Farm Bill today, Bob Stallman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, said the process of getting the bill written into law is now two-thirds complete. He spoke with Radio Oklahoma Network’s Ron Hays at the Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville, Tenn., and said President Obama has indicated he will sign the bill.


“The American Farm Bureau Federation commends the Senate for passing the new five-year farm bill with clear, bipartisan support. America’s farmers and ranchers are one step closer to having the certainty needed-and provided by the farm bill-to make planting and farm business decisions.


“The farm bill provides farmers and ranchers certainty for the coming year, allowing them to continue with their business of providing food and jobs for America. We are particularly pleased with provisions in the 2014 farm bill to provide risk management to fruit and vegetable farmers and to support livestock farmers during disasters.


“Farm Bureau now looks forward to bringing the legislation across the finish line with the president’s signature and working with USDA to get the new farm bill implemented as soon as possible.”
