Nunn Invites US House GOP Leaders To Iowa To Talk Farm Bill

Washington, DC — Congressman Zach Nunn, who represents Iowa’s third district, is inviting the top two Republicans in the US House to Iowa.

The 2018 Farm Bill expired September 30th and last month congress voted to extend it to September of 2024.

House Speaker Mike Johnson AND House Republican Leader Steve Scalise are both from Louisiana, where the main crops are sugar cane, rice and cotton.

The 2018 Farm Bill has provided about eight billion dollars in federal subsidies for crop insurance every year. The insurance covers revenue and yield losses in more than 100 crops, but the main ones are corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton.
