The Republican Representative believes that the nutrition title has been a big hold up for the last six to eight months in getting a new farm bill signed. The bill needs to be signed before the end of the year otherwise there will be immediate impact on the food of the county, including the price of a gallon of milk jumping to eight dollars a gallon, according to the lawmaker.
Noem adds that feeding America without having to go to other countries is important.
“Decades ago we decided in this county it was important to us to have a safe food supply, an affordable one that every family can be able to go and get groceries and feed their families and that we do it here in this county. That we don't want to ever be in a situation where our Ag industry goes out of business and we rely on another county for our food,” Noem said.
Noem also stated that while there are some sticking points still to hammer out, she believes that a farm bill will be passed before the end of the year.
