Senator says Inflation Reduction Act could help 2023 Farm Bill process
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown says the Inflation Reduction Act should help jumpstart the 2023 Farm Bill process.
“When we passed the Inflation Reduction Act, we funded some farm programs ahead of time, something we’ve never done,” he says. “So, this farm bill should be more productive and more helpful both to consumers and farmers because we planned for it better than we have in the past.”
The Ohio Democrat heard farm bill priorities during a roundtable with farmers on Monday. He also discussed how the Inflation Reduction Act will benefit agriculture, conservation, and more.
Brown, a member of the Senate Ag Committee, is hopeful the farm bill will continue to be bipartisan.
