Nebraska Farm Bureau pleased with farm bill passage

December 15, 2018

LINCOLN - The Nebraska Farm Bureau is pleased with the recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.

Director of National Affairs Jordan Dux tells News Talk WJAG this has been a process in the works for two plus years, and the new farm bill works for rural and urban America.

Dux says it covers a gamut of things affecting the farm economy.

“From our standpoint we think there’s a lot to like in it. There’s a lot of commodity program changes that I think was necessary. The number one priority of ours has been the protection of federal crop insurance and that has been included. Overall from our perspective it is a good bill and we are hopeful the president will sign it as soon as he can.”

Dux adds their hope is agriculture can get some certainty and the farm bill does that.

He says the focus now, is property taxes and trade in 2019.
