US (NY): House Agriculture Committee gathers farm bill input

House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11), Ranking Member Collin Peterson (MN-7) and members of the committee hosted a farm bill listening session, “Conversations in the Field,” at SUNY Cobleskill in Cobleskill, New York. Following the listening session, Conaway and Peterson made the below remarks:

“I appreciated hearing from the good people of New York as we dive head first into writing the farm bill. From dairy to specialty crops to our nutrition assistance programs, we received a lot of feedback that we’ll use to inform the draft of our bill. Thanks to SUNY Cobleskill for hosting us, Mr. Faso and his team for bringing us to the state and the many producers and stakeholders who shared their stories with us,” said Chairman Conaway.

“This final listening session allowed those in the Northeast to share with the committee their thoughts on what the next farm bill should look like. I appreciated everyone taking the time to join us, not just today but at the previous listening sessions as well. I look forward to taking this information back to Washington and beginning our work on a new bill,” said Ranking Member Peterson.
