As a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee and the Senate Farm Bill Conference Committee, Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, of Ohio, touted the benefits of the Senate farm bill proposal that goes far beyond supporting farmers and their endeavors.
“This is a jobs bill, an innovation bill, a nutrition bill, an economic development bill and the kind of farm bill that a wide swath of people in Ohio support and members of the Senate support,” Brown said regarding the areas of the bill he is interested in tackling as the House and Senate go to conference committee.
