Boozman Named Farm Bill Senate Conferee

Written by Press Release

August 1, 2018

WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after being named a Senate conferee to the Farm Bill conference committee between the House and Senate:

“I’m honored to be named as a Senate conferee to the Farm Bill conference committee and I look forward to sitting down with our counterparts in the House to ensure we finalize a bill that works for Arkansas. The farm economy and rural America have been struggling for the past few years, so timely passage of a Farm Bill would be welcome news to those who feed and clothe our country and the world. 

“Now, Congress must get to work to find consensus and produce a final bill that both chambers can approve and the president will sign. Our farmers and ranchers deserve certainty and predictability and I look forward to contributing to that effort.”
