One of David Young’s opponents in the November General Election is calling on members of the House and Senate to keep Iowa’s small family farms in mind when it comes to the farm bill.
Cindy Axne, the Democratic candidate for Iowa’s Third Congressional District, addressed the latest situation surrounding the farm bill on KMA’s Morning Line program Monday morning.
Recently, the House unanimously voted to go to conference with the Senate on a new farm bill. The small-business owner from West Des Moines believes the bill should offer more benefits to Iowa’s smaller farms.
“We want to ensure that our farmers have good opportunities,” Axne said. “They need resources behind them so that they can be successful. I want to ensure that our small and mid-size farmers in Iowa have those opportunities too. They don’t have as much when it comes to aspects of the farm bill that benefit them.”
