IOWA SEC'Y OF AG ISSUES STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT'S SIGNING OF FARM LAW
Source: Iowa Secretary of Agriculture news release

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey made the following statement on President Obama signing the farm bill into law.

"A farm bill is more than a year overdue and I'm glad it has now been signed into law. The farm bill remains very important as it provides some certainty to farmers.

"The administration must work to make sure it implemented in a timely manner and consistent with congressional intent.

"As with all compromises, this is not a perfect bill. The country of origin labeling (COOL) provisions and the failure to include Congressman King's amendment that would prevent one state from trying to dictate production methods to farmers in another state presents real challenges to our state's livestock farmers."
