Washington, DC [9/26/13] – Today, Representative Tim Walz (D-Minn.), was named to the bipartisan, bicameral Farm Bill Conference Committee to work out a deal on a long-term Farm Bill that will give rural America certainty. Walz, Ranking Member of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation, Energy, and Forestry, has been a strong advocate for agriculture and has consistently pushed leadership to move the Farm Bill to conference.
“Those that feed, clothe, and fuel the world need and deserve the certainty that a long-term Farm Bill brings,” Walz said. “While this process has taken far too long, I’m pleased the House has taken this step forward.
