Fischer Praises Farm-Focused Framework

WASHINGTON ­– Today, U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), a member of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee, issued the following statement in support of the Republican Farm Bill framework:

Nebraskans want more ‘farm’ in the farm bill, and that’s what this framework delivers. By strengthening risk management tools like crop insurance, increasing our investment in locally-led conservation programs, doubling funding for trade promotion programs, investing in research, and increasing funding for critical animal health programs, this vision provides the tools necessary for American agriculture to thrive. It also includes a number of my bills that make precision ag technology more affordable and increase connectivity in the field, tools producers use to conserve resources and cut costs. My Democratic colleagues should recognize the value of this modernization effort and work with Republicans to create a farm bill that puts producers first,” said Senator Fischer.
