Statement to be attributed to Ohio Farm Bureau president Frank Burkett III upon completion of the 2018 Farm Bill.
“Ohio Farm Bureau is very appreciative of the efforts of our agriculture committee members, Sen. Sherrod Brown, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge and Congressman Bob Gibbs. Their involvement helped shape a farm bill that will benefit all Ohioans, and we are thankful for their leadership.
“The bill provides a strong safety net for farm families, protections for the environment and helps develop export markets. We thank the entire Ohio delegation, which demonstrated great bipartisanship in completing work on a bill that is crucial to Ohio’s rural economy and will provide needed food security.
“We look forward to President Trump’s quick signing of the bill.”
