Farmers Discuss Farm Bill

Posted: Updated:

After the U.S. House of Representatives passed the "Farm Bill" Wednesday the bill now heads to the Senate. If passed and signed into law, it would mean changes for one of the largest industries in North Dakota.

Some farmers at the AG Expo are still deciding if it will hurt or help business, but most are still wondering what the bill will actually do.

"I guess I had just seen it in the paper. I haven't even checked into it yet."

"Don't know enough about it right now to make a comment."

"Lot of questions on that. I think there got to be some changes made."

"Maybe they were making some changes in the insurance subsidies I think."

"It's going to be changes five times before it's passed anyway."

"Not only that, but seventy-nine percent of that bill is food stamps, so I don't see any benefit to farmers."

"Only twenty percent are growing to farmers, so really it has so little to do with us."

"It should be called the food stamp bill."
