NAWG Applauds President Trump Signing the 2018 Farm Bill into Law

Thu, 20 Dec 2018 15:28:02 CST

NAWG Applauds President Trump Signing the 2018 Farm Bill into Law Today, President Trump officially signed The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, commonly known as the Farm Bill, into law. The signing ceremony was held in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building at the White House. NAWG President and Sentinel, OK wheat farmer Jimmie Musick was invited to attend the official signing of the bill and made the following statement:


“Today marked a historic event not only for wheat growers but all of American agriculture. The 2018 Farm Bill provides farmers with the certainty and stability they need to continue producing a safe and nutritious food supply, while using fewer resources, and maintaining healthy soil for their crop.


“Our growers began developing priorities for the Farm Bill over two years ago in order to put ourselves in the best possible position to advocate for changes to programs that would benefit the nation’s wheat farmers. They’ve been continually engaged with Members of Congress since then to not only advocate for our priorities but to also provide feedback as comprises had to be made in order to finish the bill. This is a good bill which will provide support for farmers at a time when economic and growing conditions are uncertain.


“NAWG would like to thank the Senate and House Agriculture Committee Members and their staff for their hard work, time, and patience they put into getting a bill finalized and to the President’s desk for signature. We are looking forward to working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the 116th Congress in 2019 to implement this bill.”
