Mr Johnson said: "Extending the 2008 Farm Bill again is not an adequate solution. While it is obvious we will not have a completed farm bill by its expiration on Sept. 30, I urge House leadership to appoint conferees so that the process of conferencing the Senate and House versions of the bill can begin right away.

“NFU will continue to advocate for a five-year, comprehensive farm bill to be completed in the next month.”
