KRVN 880 Rural Radio:

Today the House Agriculture Committee introduced the 2018 Farm Bill. Congressman Roger Marshall made this piece of legislation his number one priority even before his election. Having been appointed to the House Agriculture Committee, Dr. Marshall is pleased to give a positive report and outlook for the success of this critical piece of legislation for Kansas.

“This has been a long time coming, and I am thrilled to have this bill released, and for it to be considered by the committee in the near future.  I have heard my producers loud and clear. They want certainty; they want assurance that Washington is still working for them, this bill proves that we are listening,” Rep. Marshall said.

The 2018 Farm Bill protects crop insurance, reduces regulatory burdens, invests in rural broadband, ensures we are protecting the health of our livestock and helps out our beginning farmers and ranchers who are starting out during already tough times.
