Progress on the Farm Bill has halted leaving politicians like Tina Smith frustrated and annoyed. Senator Smith gives an update on what’s going on with the Farm Bill in Washington, and what disagreements are holding it back. 

Smith also discussed the upcoming retirement of Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee chair Debbie Stabenow, and how her retirement could affect the bill. 

Finally with it being an election year a Farm Bill will need bipartisan support, but Smith says she and other Senate Democrats will not be passing a Farm Bill that sees cuts to the Nutrition Program.
