Rep. Rosendale Urges Speaker Johnson for Swift Passage of Farm Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Matt Rosendale (MT-02) and several House Republicans sent a letter to Speaker Mike Johnson urging him for a swift passage of the Farm Bill to provide the resources necessary to farmers and ranchers across America.  “Farm and food security is national security,” said Rep. Rosendale. “Supporting our farmers and ranchers across Montana has always been my priority, which is why I was proud to join several of my colleagues in sending a letter to Speaker Johnson urging him to bring forward a strong Farm Bill. As we approach the end of the year, I will continue fighting to ensure Congress passes this critical piece of legislation so our farmers and ranchers have the resources they need to continue feeding America.” To read the full letter Rep. Rosendale and House Republicans sent to Speaker Johnson, click HERE.

Earlier this year, Rep. Rosendale held an agriculture roundtable in Great Falls to hear Montanans’ concerns and priorities.

Congressman Rosendale’s Farm Bill priorities include:

  • Securing a strong crop insurance program to give producers certainty while protecting taxpayers from crisis spending when natural disasters inevitably strike.
  • Stopping the Chinese Communist Party and other foreign entities from purchasing U.S. farmland.
  • Fixing labeling and exporting/importing of beef – such as country of origin labeling or his USA Beef Act.
  • Including a Cottonwood fix under the forestry title, such as his legislation, the FIR Act.
  • Creating a separate regulatory framework for industrial hemp by including the Industrial Hemp Act.
