Trump Signs $867B Farm Bill into Law

Five-year bill will set policies and reauthorize farm, conservation, nutrition, rural development, agricultural trade and more

President Trump signed The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, commonly known as the farm bill, into law Thursday afternoon, reports The Washington Post.

“We have to take care of our farmers and ranchers, and we will take care of them,” Trump said at the signing ceremony.

The House adopted the House-Senate conference report by 369-47 last week, a day after the Senate had approved the legislation 87-13.

The final five-year farm bill would set policies and reauthorize farm, conservation, nutrition, rural development, agricultural trade and other programs. 

NAWG President and Sentinel, OK wheat farmer Jimmie Musick was invited to attend the official signing of the bill and said the 2018 Farm Bill provides farmers with the certainty and stability they need to continue producing a safe and nutritious food supply.
