Statement from Nebraska Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson Regarding Senate Passage of 2018 Farm Bill

LINCOLN, NEB. – “We welcome today’s action by the U.S. Senate to approve the final version of the 2018 Farm Bill. The Senate’s vote moves us one step closer to advancing this important legislation to the desk of the President.”

“Passage of a farm bill will help provide certainty to Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers as they navigate the challenges of today’s agriculture economy and also provide certainty to Nebraska’s lending industry that is tasked with making decisions regarding operating notes for Nebraska’s agriculture operations.”

“We thank Sen. Deb Fischer and Sen. Ben Sasse for their work on the 2018 Farm Bill and for their votes in favor of this measure. We encourage the U.S. House to follow suit and move quickly to provide final farm bill passage.”

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service and advocacy efforts. More than 61,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
