Kansas Corn Statement on Farm Bill Passage in Senate
Dec. 11, 2018–Kansas Corn Growers Association President Ken McCauley praised the U.S. Senate’s passage of the 2018 Farm Bill today.The farm bill passed the Senate with a bipartisan vote of 87-13. KCGA pointed to the leadership of Kansas Senator Pat Roberts, who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee and the farm bill conference committee as key to the bill’s passage.
“The U.S. Senate took a big step forward today by passing the 2018 Farm Bill with a bipartisan majority,” McCauley said. “Farmers are facing a lot of uncertainty going into the 2019 crop year, and passing a farm bill is important to us. I don’t think we would see a farm bill moving forward without the steady and resolute guidance of Kansas Senator Pat Roberts. We hope to see quick passage in the House and have the President’s signature soon.”
