Illinois Soybean Growers Commends Senate for Farm Bill Action

 

BLOOMINGTON, ILL. – June 28, 2018 – Lynn Rohrscheib, president of the Illinois Soybean Growers, issued the following comment regarding the Senate's passage of the Farm Bill.
 
"Sound Farm Bill policy means a strong rural America. The Illinois Soybean Growers applauds the Senate's bipartisan leadership to achieve an adequately funded Farm Bill. We face many uncertainties in our industry today from markets to trade, but a Farm Bill ensures stability. We also recognize that a Farm Bill is not only beneficial to the ag community, but to the many Americans that benefit from food and nutrition programs. We call on the conference committee to further this legislation and come to consensus on a bill that benefits urban and rural communities."
