A Day After Farm Bill Signed, Noem Visits With South Dakotans

A Day After Farm Bill Signed, Noem Visits With South Dakotans
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A day after President Obama signs the Farm Bill, U.S Representative Kristi Noem is in South Dakota to visit with producers.

The measure spent years in congress - with both sides of the isle struggling to come to an agreement.  Fifteen percent of the Farm Bill goes to agriculture and producers say it is good to have the bill signed.

“To me it’s good that we have the Farm Bill signed, at least now they have the rules and regulations in place. The farmers will need to know what those rules and regulations are and that's going to take a little time,” American Soybean Association Director Dave Poppens said.

Noem says despite the long wait the final passage of the bill is a win.

“I think our hard work really paid off in the fact that even though it was late and it’s been messy and it’s been a big determent to the producers and to ranchers. We do have a more educated public and do have a more educated congress on why it is important,” Noem said.

Noem says now that the legislation is signed - implementing the new regulations for Ag production is a priority.
