As work continues on the 2023 Farm Bill, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, a senior member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, is hosting U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), the lead Republican and Ranking Member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, in Minnesota on Friday for meetings with farmers, producers, conservation groups, nutrition leaders, agricultural researchers, and local businesses.
“We have a long and proud tradition of working across the aisle on a strong Farm Bill that meets the needs of our farmers and producers,” said Klobuchar. “That’s why, as we continue working on the 2023 Farm Bill, I’m excited to welcome Senator Boozman to Minnesota to learn firsthand about the priorities of our farmers and rural communities.”
“The Senate Agriculture Committee has a rich history of working in a bipartisan fashion, one that continues to this day. I appreciate Senator Klobuchar inviting me to join her in Minnesota to learn more about the needs of producers and rural communities in her state. The most valuable input we get for the 2023 Farm Bill will come from stakeholders on the ground, so these visits are a very important part of the process,” said Boozman.
