The following is a statement from Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB) President Richard Guebert, Jr., regarding the Senate Agriculture Committee’s advancement of the 2018 Farm Bill.
“Illinois Farm Bureau applauds the bipartisan work of the U.S. Senate Ag Committee today in advancing its farm bill. At this time of economic uncertainty with farm income, our members need the risk management programs included in the farm bill more than ever.
“We urge the full Senate to follow the committee’s lead and approve the legislation as soon as possible.”
