In this week's #FarmBillFriday, Rep. Dan Newhouse (WA-4) underscores the impact the farm bill has on Washington's economy and the livelihood of its communities.
"... our agricultural economy depends on a secure, safety net for our nation’s farmers."
Rep. Newhouse said [in part]:
I represent central Washington state where agriculture and the farm bill play a huge role in our economy and the livelihood of our communities.
... our agricultural economy depends on a secure, safety net for our nation’s farmers, on the important research opportunities and requirements that we need to stay on the cutting edge, and as you know, the farm bill provides nutritious food items to needy people in communities in my district and around the country.
So I am determined that we pass a farm bill this year, it’s very important for our agricultural industry, certainly in central Washington state and around the country.
