Franken: Congress Will Write New Farm Bill

Franken: Congress Will Write New Farm Bill

Minnesota Senator Al Franken believes Congress will write a new farm bill this year.

Franken's staff are visiting communities in Minnesota to talk with farmers about what they would like to see in the next farm bill.

Franken knows cuts are likely for farm programs but believes federal crop insurance needs to be spared.

"This is a national security issue, so we want to keep farmers farming, so if there is a bad year we want to make sure there's a safety net, and if we're losing direct payments there's even more reason to have a strong safety net and that means crop insurance," Franken said.

Franken's staff will hold farm bill meetings in Morehead and East Grand Forks, Minnesota Thursday.
