WASHINGTON, D.C. [06/28/18]—Today, U.S. Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.)—a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee—urged her Senate colleagues to pass the bipartisan Farm Bill in order to provide more certainty to farmers, and to support jobs in Minnesota and across the country.
“The Farm Bill touches the lives of virtually every American, and it is vital to my state’s economy,” said Sen. Smith in her speech from the Senate floor. “This bill will provide important stability and predictability to Minnesota farmers, ranchers, rural communities, and Indian Country while also sustaining tens of thousands of Minnesota jobs.
“I was proud to be able to participate in crafting the Farm Bill as a member of the Agriculture Committee. It was a truly bipartisan process, and an example of how we can get things done when we work together.”
