KEYC Reports Sen. Franken Urges Passage of Farm Bill

Thursday, December 6, 2012

In an effort to help farmers across Minnesota who are facing uncertainty because a new Farm Bill hasn't been passed by the House of Representatives, Sen. Franken is urging Senate leadership to include the bipartisan, Senate-passed Farm Bill in any deal brokered to address the nation's fiscal challenges.

Senator Al Franken says one in five Minnesota jobs are related to Agriculture. The senate passed a very bipartisan bill in the senate with 64 votes, and it aims to save $23 billion to pay off the deficit.

Franken says, "It should be done by the end of the year to give reassurance to farmers. I've been all around Minnesota, I've been to a farm near Mankato our farmers want this bill passed."
