As of this writing, the Farm Bill – the most significant piece of legislation related to agriculture – was due to be negotiated in Congress. The current Farm Bill, which was enacted in 2018, is due to expire in 2023. It includes a wide range of provisions in areas including disaster programs, export credit guarantee programs, infrastructure and technology development, and protective actions needed to minimize the risk of pathogens in the food and water supply. Regional interests play a key role in the bill, so organizations in the foodservice industry should know how their interests may be impacted in the upcoming bill. The Council for State Governments provides background on what’s included, as well as links to additional resources.
