USDA Secretary Perdue Touts Farm Bill's Strong Safety Net Provisions - Encourages Trump to Sign It

Wed, 12 Dec 2018 16:54:18 CST

USDA Secretary Perdue Touts Farm Bill's Strong Safety Net Provisions - Encourages Trump to Sign It U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today hailed the passage of the 2019 Farm Bill. The House of Representatives approved the conference report on the bill this afternoon, following the Senate’s passage yesterday.



Perdue issued the following statement:



“The passage of the 2019 Farm Bill is good news because it provides a strong safety net for farmers and ranchers, who need the dependability and certainty this legislation affords. This Farm Bill will help producers make decisions about the future, while also investing in important agricultural research and supporting trade programs to bolster exports. While I feel there were missed opportunities in forest management and in improving work requirements for certain SNAP recipients, this bill does include several helpful provisions and we will continue to build upon these through our authorities. I commend Congress for bringing the Farm Bill across the finish line and am encouraging President Trump to sign it.”
