KY Congressmen Look For Bipartisanship In Farm bill
Kentucky Representatives Ed Whitfield, Andy Barr and Brett Guthrie are calling on House Speaker John Boehner to assign farm bill conferees from the House of Representatives to meet with Senate conferees.
They want an across-the-aisle agreement on a new long-term farm bill.
In a letter to Boehner yesterday, the Congressmen say The United States is home to over 2.2 million farms, 97% of which are run by families.
They also say an agreement sooner than later saves taxpayers’ money. The trio acknowledges the ongoing government shutdown.
They argue that Congress can be working on passing the farm bill as they await an agreement to be made.
