WASHINGTON – National Farmers Union (NFU) President Rob Larew issued the following statement on the 2024 Farm Bill overviews issued by the Senate and House Agriculture Committees.

“A farm bill needs bipartisan support in order to become law. I appreciate the work that the House and Senate Ag Committees have put into the current proposals. There’s more work to be done to find common ground and consensus. Building a stronger farm bill coalition will provide the support necessary to pass this legislation.  

“Considering the volatility in the food system since the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law, family farmers need a farm bill that establishes a stronger farm safety net, builds fairer and more competitive markets and creates better opportunities for the next generation of farmers. We are encouraged to see yesterday’s progress and look forward to working with the committees as they forge ahead in the process.”
