A broad coalition of South Dakota organizations is urging Congress to act quickly to reauthorize the farm bill.
Members of the coalition took part Saturday in a rally at the State Fair. Coalition members say the farm bill includes comprehensive programs that affect all Americans.
Mike Stephenson of Pheasants Forever in South Dakota says the bill is important to hunters, anglers, farmers, livestock feeders and everyone who eats.
After the Senate passed a farm bill in June, the House passed a different version that took out food stamps. The two chambers have not yet reached agreement.
South Dakota Farmers Union president Doug Sombke, who led the State Fair rally, says a farm bill provides a safety net for farmers and feeds the hungry.
