Senator Stabenow: President Trump Signs Bipartisan Farm Bill

Thursday, December 20, 2018

Today U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow applauded the enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill after President Trump signed the bill into law. Stabenow co-authored the bill as Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.


“The 2018 Farm Bill is now the law of the land,” said Senator Stabenow. “In Michigan, agriculture is our second largest industry, supporting one in four jobs. This bill will grow our state’s diverse agricultural economy and support our farmers, families, and rural communities.”


The bipartisan bill strongly supports Michigan’s farmers and agricultural economy, which is the state’s second-largest industry. The bill also has a major impact in protecting Michigan’s Great Lakes, investing in our small towns and rural communities, promoting Michigan forestry, supporting local food economies, and providing healthy food for families.
