WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement on the Farm Bill framework proposal announced by Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture:

“The Farm Bill framework does exactly what farmers in Kansas and throughout the country have asked for: it puts more farm in the Farm Bill by bolstering crop insurance, modernizing the farm safety net, expanding market access and development programs, maintaining locally led conservation programs and investing in our rural communities.

“I commend Sen. Boozman for producing a robust framework that continues the conversation to ultimately reauthorize the Farm Bill. I am also pleased the framework includes several of my legislative priorities including the Farm to Fly Act and the Butcher Block Act. In addition, it provides significant investments for land grant universities including Kansas State University.

“I look forward to continuing this debate and working with my colleagues to make certain we provide our producers with the tools they need to combat the consequences of prolonged drought and help bring certainty to farmers, ranchers and families in Kansas.”
