Michigan 7th District Congressman Tim Walberg’s Thoughts on Farm Bill

Today, after years of negotiation, the House passed a Farm Bill conference agreement on a vote of 251-166.

I voted in favor of the agreement and now look forward to the Senate acting on it to give Michigan farmers certainty as they continue to provide a safe and abundant food supply for our community and the world.
