Farm Foundation®, an accelerator of practical solutions for agriculture, will host its next virtual Forum, What to Expect From the 2023 Farm Bill, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. CDT (8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. MST) Tuesday, December 6.
The U.S. Farm Bill is reviewed and renewed every five years. “A new farm bill is informed by various factors, such as the outcomes of the recent midterm election,” says Farm Foundation president and CEO Shari Rogge-Fidler. “With this fresh data to analyze, we could not have gathered a better panel to examine the possible path of the next farm bill.”
The panel discussion will include:
- Spencer Chase, managing editor of Agri-Pulse, will moderate the panel, which will include diverse perspectives from these expert contributors:
- Christopher Adamo, former staff director, Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry
- Jonathan Coppess, director, Gardner Agriculture Policy Program and associate professor of law and policy, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- U.S. Congressman Glenn G.T. Thompson, Pennsylvania’s 15th District, U.S. House of Representatives
The Forum will be an evolution of a conversation started in a recently published Farm Foundation Issue Report on the upcoming farm bill. It is expected to provide further insights informed because of new developments since its publication.
Audience members will be invited to submit questions for the panelists to answer live during the event.
This event is being held virtually and is free to attend, but registration is required. Farmers, ranchers, food and agribusiness leaders, government officials and staff, industry representatives, NGO representatives, academics, students in agricultural disciplines, and members of the media are all encouraged to attend.
