Corn Growers Welcome Passage of 2018 Farm Bill in US Senate

Fri, 29 Jun 2018 05:13:32 CDT

North Dakota farmer Kevin Skunes, president of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), made the following statement on the Senate passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.

“Today’s vote is a welcome step to providing much-needed certainty for farmers facing increasingly challenging times.


“NCGA would like to thank Senate Republicans and Democrats for working together to get this bipartisan bill passed and recognizing the importance and effectiveness of the farm bill’s risk management tools, including a robust federal crop insurance program.


“With the combined threat of retaliatory trade tariffs and an EPA seemingly intent on dismantling the RFS, farmers need a strong farm bill now more than ever. NCGA urges members of the House and Senate to come together quickly and find common ground to strengthen the farm safety net and adequately meet the needs of American consumers and our rural communities across our nation.”
