With a vote of 16-5, the Senate Agriculture Committee voted a Farm Bill out of committee on Thursday, 4/27. Thank you to everyone who worked hard to let the Senate hear from the sustainable agriculture grassroots in this fast moving process! Those calls really do make a difference.
Our effort improved this bill significantly, and there are a number of wins that we should celebrate. The process isn't over, and that is good because there are also some very important improvements still to be made. Stay tuned!
