“As a member of the U.S. House Agriculture Committee, I am always thinking about how we can enact policies that will benefit hardworking farmers, rural communities and New Hampshire’s agricultural economy.
That’s why I was so disappointed when House Republicans decided to move forward with a partisan farm bill that slashes billions in conservation funding and did not adequately support smaller farms. The House Republican farm bill also included dramatic cuts to nutrition programs that help over 90,000 Granite Staters put food on the table.
Thankfully, Senate Republicans and Democrats came together to pass a bipartisan farm bill that does right by communities across New Hampshire."
