Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Commends Passage of Farm Bill
Atlanta, GA- Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black issued the following statement on the passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, commonly referred to as the 2018 Farm Bill.
“I commend the Administration and Congress for coming to an agreement before the new year regarding this important piece of the puzzle for our farmers. Given all the variables that our farmers must deal with on a daily basis, it is imperative that they have the certainty of clear and steady farm policies. This farm bill will do just that by equipping our farm families, lending institutions and rural communities to plan for the future.”
