Deltans air views on Farm Bill
BELZONI, Miss. – U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) met last week with agriculture and community leaders to listen to views and concerns regarding implementation of the 2014 farm bill, including catfish inspections and the new agricultural production safety net programs.
Cochran, ranking Republican on the Senate Agriculture Committee, said he was interested in hearing first-hand how well the U.S. Department of Agriculture is rolling out the many reforms and improvements built in the 2014 farm bill, a law enacted in February that sets federal farm policies for the next five years.
