Noem Asks President To Gather Farm Bill Support

Noem Asks President To Gather Farm Bill Support
Kristi Noem

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem has sent a letter to President Barack Obama asking him to rally Democratic support for the Farm Bill.

The current Farm Bill will expire at the end of September and right now a new version is stalled in the U.S. House.

During his trip to Iowa this week President Obama urged Congress to pass the bill to help farmers during the current drought.

Noem hopes the letter to Obama will help gather support from Democrats while she works with Republican leadership to bring the bill up for a vote.

"I had a conversation with Speaker Boehner this [Thursday] morning about the Farm Bill and I’m hoping we can get it to the floor in September. He's optimistic about that, so if we can do that and then get enough votes there to pass it then we'll see some movement and get it reauthorized before it expires at the end of September," Noem said.

Congress is currently in recess until September 10.
