Noem, Varilek Disagree On Timing Of Farm Bill Vote

Noem, Varilek Disagree On Timing Of Farm Bill Vote
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

There's a war of words being waged over the Farm Bill.

Congresswoman Kristi Noem of South Dakota was called out by Democratic challenger Matt Varilek after a Noem-sponsored Agriculture Roundtable on Monday.

Varilek questioned why Noem didn't push for an immediate vote on the Farm Bill in September.

"I would encourage her to explain why she has taken a position allowing the Farm Bill to languish, why she won't pursue this effort to support a vote even though her friend, Congressman Berg, does support it," Varilek said.

"For me, at this point in time, I wanted to help during this August period build some momentum among everybody and try and get a coalition to bring it to the floor under regular order. But if I don't see that being successful during August that discharge petition may be something we have to pursue," Noem said.

Varilek claimed Noem originally supported the discharge petition in a signed letter with another member of Congress. But Noem's campaign staff claims that letter was only a draft and she does not support it now.
