"The Senate Agriculture Committee's bipartisan Farm Bill process is a reminder of how things should work in Washington -- listening to the folks back home, working through issues with the other side of the aisle, then writing a good bill," said Roberts and Stabenow. "Today marks another important step in the road to getting an on-time Farm Bill enacted into law. We urge our colleagues to support this bill."

To read the legislation, summaries, and amendments go to www.agriculture.senate.gov/2018-farm-bill.

The legislation has the support of more than 115 agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and forestry groups.

The legislation now heads to the full U.S. Senate for consideration.
