Tennessee Farm Bureau Statement on House Passage of Farm Bill

Tennessee’s farmers appreciate the U.S. House of Representatives passing the Farm Bill. The Farm Bill plays an important role in ensuring Tennessee’s farmers can continue to help produce America’s safe, abundant and affordable food supply. We thank Representatives Black, Blackburn, DesJarlais, Fleishmann, Kustoff and Roe for voting in favor of the Farm Bill.
“Passage of the Farm Bill is great news for American farmers and for Tennessee farmers at a time when the farm economy is struggling. We needed some good news, and we are so excited for passage of the Farm Bill in the House and look forward to the good things this will mean for agriculture,” said TFBF President Jeff Aiken.
 
Farmers now look to the US Senate and encourage the continued bipartisan support of the Farm Bill. We are hopeful for complete resolution of the Farm Bill before the current law expires in September.
