Sen. Grassley talks Farm Bill
Iowa’s senior Senator suggests bill will pass before Sept. 30 deadline
While at home in New Hartford, U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley took time out last Wednesday for his weekly public affairs inteview with statewide media.
The Daily News participated in the interview, along with news reporter Brian Fancher of KLMJ-FM of Hampton. The first question was given to Fancher, who asked about the progress of the new Farm Bill, which the Senate has already approved.
“I think there will be a bill before the Sept. 30 deadline for the end of the current Farm Bill,” he said. “I’m backing senators (Debbie) Stabenow (D-Mich.) and (Majority Leader Harry) Reid (D-Nev.) that there should be no extension beyond the current one. You just can’t justify another extension when we have high grain prices.”
