American Farmland Trust Supports Senate Farm Bill

According to President John Piotti, the American Farmland Trust applauds the passage of the Senate Farm bill today and commends Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow for this bipartisan and expedient step towards a 2018 Farm Bill. AFT looks forward to a similar approach by the conferees for a timely bill that provides certainty for American farmers and ranchers and much-needed funds to protect the land they steward.
