Senate Passes Farm Bill – 86 to 11
Passage of the bill today is another step forward, and holds the possibility of the 2018 Farm Bill’s passage before the current bill expires in September.
CLA applauds the U.S. Senate’s rejection of an amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill offered by U.S. Sens. Mike Lee (Utah) and Cory Booker (N.J.) that sought to undermine commodity “checkoff” programs.
Colorado Livestock Association appreciates those senators who supported this critical legislation and were able to pass the bill before the upcoming recess.
Thank you to Senator Micheal Bennet and Senator Cory Gardner for their votes in support of this important legislation.
