NAT'L ASSN OF WHEAT GROWERS APPLAUDS FARM BILL NEGOTIATORS FOR MOVING PROCESS FORWARD
National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) reports:

The leadership of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees have announced that they've reached a tentative agreement on a conference report for the 2018 Farm Bill, pending final scores from the Congressional Budget Office. While the bill still needs to be reported out of the conference committee, voted on by both Chambers and signed into law, NAWG is pleased the process is moving forward.

NAWG President Jimmie Musick made the following statement in response:
"NAWG appreciates conferees diligently working together to reach an agreement to strengthen the agriculture industry. This past year our growers have dealt with the impact of the trade war between U.S. and China, extreme weather conditions, and a struggling rural economy and more. Farm Bill support programs provide them with some certainty during these volatile times.

"NAWG looks forward to reviewing the language within the bill."
