The Chairwoman of the Senate Ag Committee says there’s still opportunity to get a farm bill done this year.
But, Debbie Stabenow of Michigan tells Brownfield it’s only doable if people set their partisan hats aside. “Members need to sit down and work together on a bipartisan basis,” she says. “We absolutely can get this done.”
She says putting a farm bill together in this political climate is challenging, but the committees have worked through difficult political climates before.
