2018 farm bill signed into law

January 22, 2019

President Trump signed the $867 billion 2018 Farm Bill in late 2018. The Bill increases funding to find new foreign markets for U.S. agriculture commodities, expands federal crop insurance, helps farmers transition to organic practices, legalizes industrial hemp and keeps the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) largely intact. The Farm Bureau provided an informative, high-level summary of the 807-page Bill.
