Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC- Today Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02), member of the House Agriculture Committee, released the following statement regarding the introduction of this year’s Farm Bill:

“The Farm Bill provides our farmers and ranchers the resources they need to expand our nation’s robust agriculture economy. In Nebraska, one out of every four jobs are related to the agricultural sector. Year after year, Nebraska is a national leader in agricultural exports, generating $14.58 billion in value and economic activity. In the Second District, the agribusiness industry includes transportation, financing, warehousing, processing, and packing companies which are tied intrinsically to the state's hardworking farmers and ranchers. I thank Chairman Conaway for his leadership and look forward to next week’s mark-up. My hope is that this Farm Bill passes with bipartisan support through the Committee and on the House floor.”
