WASHINGTON – Today U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow applauded the enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill after President Trump signed the bill into law. Stabenow co-authored the bill as Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.
“After many months of hard work, the 2018 Farm Bill is now the law of the land,” said Senator Stabenow. “This bill expands the diversity of our agricultural economy, maintains a strong food and farm safety net, creates new opportunities in our small towns and rural communities, and makes significant investments in land and water conservation.
“While I’m pleased the President has signed the Farm Bill, I have strong concerns that the Administration’s rule on nutrition assistance will take food away from families. I will oppose any attempt by this Administration to undermine our bipartisan Farm Bill that protects food assistance.”
