Noem, Democratic Colleague, Urge Farm Bill

July 19, 2012, 5:18 AM

Noem, Democratic Colleague, Urge Farm Bill
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem and a Democratic colleague have gathered more than 50 signatures from both parties urging House leaders to bring the farm bill to the floor.

Noem and Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont in their letter are urging their parties' House leaders to bring the farm bill up before the August recess.

They say that the House Agriculture Committee has done its work and ask that the legislation be debated, conferenced and passed into law before the current bill expires.

Noem says passage is critical to ranchers who depend on livestock disaster programs that expired last year. She says the farm bill would also be retroactive so ranchers could report losses incurred this year and still receive assistance.
