IMPORTANT DETAILS INSIDE: Critical Funding Secured ✅

Iowa’s farmers are critical to the American economy, providing the essential service of feeding and fueling our country. With input costs up and inflation driving profits down, producers are facing enough difficulties without worrying about D.C. hurting their business. They deserve far better than to be saddled with the consequences of politicians not doing their job. 

That’s why, today, I voted to extend funding for critical farm programs for a year so Iowa’s producers can have the certainty they need to continue running their operations after a busy harvest season.  


By extending the Farm Bill, we ensure the continuation of all critical programs that the more than 84,000 Iowa farmers rely on, including: 

  • Fully funding the farm safety net through commodity programs and crop insurance   
  • Continued support for conservation programs  
  • Support for rural development, including infrastructure and health care services  
  • Expansion of rural broadband  
  • Investment in agricultural innovation and security  
  • Backing for robust production of biofuels to lower energy costs for Americans 

Our work isn’t done yet. I’m also fighting aggressively for a five-year Farm Bill that includes the priorities shared with us during our Farm Bill Listening Tours across Iowa. If you haven’t had a chance to share your priorities at a listening post, would you take just a few minutes to let me know what matters most to you in this Farm Bill?
