American Farm Bureau Grateful to See Federal Goverment Reopen for Three Weeks

Sat, 26 Jan 2019 14:23:37 CST

American Farm Bureau Grateful to See Federal Goverment Reopen for Three Weeks With the Congress passing the Continuing Resolution that will fund the twenty percent of the Federal Government that was shut down for 35 days, the following may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“We are encouraged that the federal government will be re-opened for three weeks while Congress and the administration work on a permanent budget solution. At our annual meeting last week, our delegate body from 50 states and Puerto Rico called on President Trump, Speaker Pelosi and all leadership to move quickly to put this shutdown behind us. Farmers have crops to plant, animals to raise and food to sell. We need the Agriculture Department and the rest of the federal government up and running to do the job the American people need us to do.

“We also want to express our great appreciation to the thousands of federal employees at USDA and other agencies who put in long hours without pay these last several weeks to ensure our country was protected and that the services farmers and ranchers depend on remained available.”
