Peterson optimistic on Farm Bill prospects

Agriculture.com Staff Updated: 06/11/2013 @ 1:53pm

U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, (D-MN), today made the following statement after the U.S. Senate approved S. 954, the 2013 Farm Bill.

“Today’s Senate vote brings us one step closer to having a new, five-year farm bill in place this year. Chairwoman Stabenow and Ranking Member Cochran did an excellent job, and I applaud their leadership.

“This process has gone on far too long, but with the strong bipartisan support in the Senate, I’m optimistic the House will be able to consider our farm bill next week. It’s going to be difficult, but if everything stays on track, I believe it’s possible to get a bill to the president before the August recess, finally providing some certainty for our farmers, ranchers, and consumers.”
