WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR), ranking member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, begins a series of listening sessions to gain input from Natural State agricultural producers as the process of writing the 2023 Farm Bill gets underway. 

“The best solutions come from the ground up. I look forward to continuing our conversations with Arkansas agricultural producers and stakeholders about how we can improve policies to better support the industry so we can maintain our position as a leader in producing the saftest, most abundant food supply in the world. This feedback will greatly benefit the committee as we move forward with writing the next farm bill,” Boozman said.
