House Agriculture Committee Chairman Glenn "GT" Thompson (PA-15) and Ranking Member David Scott (GA-13) launched an online portal to solicit Farm Bill feedback from Members of the House of Representatives, regardless of membership on the House Committee on Agriculture.
This portal provides members the opportunity to share the unique experiences and priorities of the farmers, ranchers, foresters, producers, and consumers they represent.
"In order to craft a comprehensive, effective Farm Bill, we must hear from stakeholders across the country," said Chairman Thompson. "Members understand the needs of their districts best and can provide crucial insight that supports our nation's providers."
“The Farm Bill touches every district across America, from urban city centers to rural farming towns,” said Ranking Member Scott. “To ensure the 2023 Farm Bill is as strong as it can possibly be, I encourage every Member of the U.S. House to convey the agriculture and nutrition priorities of their district using this innovative online portal.”
