“I’m going to hedge on the farm bill getting passed this year,” said Sharice Davids, Kansas’ Third District House representative.
Tracey Mann, Kansas’ First District House representative, agreed, saying farm bill text for review from the U.S. Senate is slated for a November release, with U.S. House drafts expected sooner.
