WASHINGTON D.C. – First District Representative Suzan DelBene has been named as a member of the conference committee tasked with negotiating a new farm bill.
DelBene says Congress inaction since the last farm bill expired has hurt local farmers and families.
The House of Representatives passed a resolution last week to enter into formal talks with the Senate.
DelBene has previously worked on a bipartisan farm bill as a member of the House Agriculture Committee.
