Today, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released a detailed section-by-section farm bill reauthorization proposal, The Rural Prosperity and Food Security Act. 

In response, The Rev. Dr. Jessica Moerman, EEN’s President & CEO, released the following statement:

"EEN is heartened to see Chairwoman Stabenow’s proposal. Our farmers today face many uncertainties, from rising input costs to increasingly extreme and unpredictable weather. Further delays towards a bipartisan farm bill agreement only add to the uncertainty. We are grateful to the Chairwoman for her leadership taking this process to the next step. America’s farmers, foresters, and ranchers are among the most dedicated stewards of God’s creation and are key leaders in making our family farms and food system resilient to climate shocks and in the fight to mitigate the severity of climate-fueled extreme weather. EEN especially welcomes the many bipartisan conservation provisions in the proposal, which will further empower our farmers with the resources needed to steward our land, water, and climate well and pass it down to the next generation. We encourage our leaders across Congress to continue to work together to keep progress on a bipartisan bill moving forward."
