Wisconsin Congressman seeks farm bill input
A Wisconsin Congressman and member of the House Ag Committee is asking for more farmer input on the next farm bill.
Representative Derrick Van Orden now has an online portal where he invites Wisconsin farmers to share their priorities. The portal lets farmers mark their priorities, offer suggestions, and comment on what programs are working well and which ones need changes.
Van Orden says he wants to bring to the floor a final product that supports rural Wisconsinites by lowering agricultural input costs, ensuring there is a strong safety net, and providing a ‘hand up’ not a ‘hand out’ for those who need it.
