Description

The House Agriculture Committee recently reported out its 2018 Farm Bill. Expected on the House floor this month, the current legislation continues the out of control farm handout system that has been so prevalent in past iterations. Without reform, the farm subsidy system will continue to distort the agricultural marketplace, while primarily benefiting a small number of the largest and wealthiest farmers.

Join us for a discussion with two leading members of the U.S. House of Representatives who will provide insight into why farm subsidy reform is so important, and how key reform ideas could help move Congress in the right direction.
