House Ag Leader Talks Farm Bill at Farm Progress
House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Glenn “GT” Thompson is at the Farm Progress Show, discussing the next farm bill with state agricultural groups and farmers. “There’s only one option in my mind in 2023: reauthorize the farm bill before the current bill expires. I’ve been open about my frustrations for two years, but finally, in June, it seems we lit a fire under the majority party,” says Thompson. “We’ve had more farm bill hearings in Washington D.C., but we haven’t implemented many field hearings yet.” Thompson says additional farm bill field hearings will be important after the upcoming elections in November.
