Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Ranking Member John Boozman (R-Ark.) announced Wednesday the committee will hold its first hearing on the 2023 Farm Bill on April 29 in Michigan.
The hearing, entitled “Growing Jobs and Economic Opportunity: 2023 Farm Bill Perspectives,” will be held at Michigan State University and will include a yet-to-be-named slate of Michigan farmers and ag stakeholders as witnesses.
Senator Stabenow said in a press release that bipartisanship is a priority of the committee in developing the next farm bill. “Our most recent Farm Bill passed with the strongest bipartisan support ever. Senator Boozman and I intend to continue that strong bipartisan tradition. I am pleased to welcome him to Michigan to join me in hearing from farmers and others impacted by the Farm Bill about how we can strengthen this important legislation, grow our economy, and build a stronger food supply chain,” Senator Stabenow said.
