Noem Speaks At Farm Bill Rally

Bookmark and Share

South Dakota's lone voice in the U.S. House spoke out Wednesday morning during a rally to bring the stalled Farm Bill to a vote in the House.
Congresswoman Kristi Noem was a featured speaker at the "Farm Bill Now" rally in Washington, D.C. The rally was organized by different agriculture agencies who want to make sure farmers and ranchers have protections in place after the current Farm Bill expires at the end of the month.

Noem says she's frustrated with the lack of progress, but believes a new bill can be passed by then. But, her challenger in this fall's election, Matt Varilek, says she's not doing enough to get the job done.

The House Agriculture Committee approved its version of a Farm Bill before the body's August recess. The full Senate approved a Farm Bill in July.

Noem says she and other supporters plan to use a rule to force a floor vote, as long as 218 members of the House sign their petition.
