CCUSA, the USCCB, CRS and others issued a joint letter on today’s vote in the Senate on the Farm Bill (S. 3042)

In their response, they stated: “We applaud the bipartisan cooperation in the production of S. 3042. This is a crucial time for our nation to put poor and hungry people first, support farmers and ranchers in need, promote sustainable stewardship of the land, and help rural communities both at home and in developing countries. We look forward to continuing to work with you as you deliberate further on the 2018 Farm Bill.”
