(DES MOINES) – Governor Terry E. Branstad, Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey and Iowa Department of Natural Resources Director Chuck Gipp today called upon congressional leaders to swiftly reconcile farm bill differences to seize the opportunity to provide long-term certainty to agricultural producers, enact program reforms and achieve cost savings.

“A long-term farm bill is overdue and congressional leaders have the opportunity to provide certainty in the farm economy. I am hopeful that congressional leaders can find a way forward in the very near future,” said Branstad.

“The farm bill provides vital certainty to Iowa farmers,” said Northey. “It is important that the House and Senate work together on a bipartisan basis to keep the bill moving.”
