Feenstra: Farm Bill May Be Up For House Vote In Mid-June

Washington, DC — Work is progressing on crafting the new Farm Bill, and Iowa’s Fourth District Congressman Randy Feenstra, a Republican from Hull, says he’s hopeful the legislation that’s so important to the heartland will be finalized soon.

The Farm Bill is typically updated every five years, but a new version didn’t materialize last year, and Congress passed a one-year extension which will last through this fall.

Feenstra says there’s a lot of concern over the crop insurance element of the Farm Bill.

He says there’s also a great deal of concern about the export market and finding new free trade agreement areas in which to grow.
