Conaway expects no drama with 2018 Farm Bill

The Chairman of the House Agriculture committee says he’s confident House and Senate Ag Committees will be able get a Farm Bill passed before the current bill expires.

Even though it is early in the process, Texas Republican Mike Conaway tells Brownfield Ag News he’s certain they can get it done.

“Certainly no – no need for the normal drama that you have of extensions and expirations and all the things you go with that. There’s no reason to do that. So, I’m hopeful that (Senate Ag Chairman) Pat Robertson and I can get this on President Trump’s desk in time – you know, before the current (farm) bill expires.”

The debate on the 2018 Farm Bill is likely to take a different tone from the 2014 Farm Bill since this Farm Bill will be written in a down farm economy.
