Days from Expiration, Hochul Pushes For New Farm Bill to Help WNY Farmers

Press Release

Location: Williamsville, NY

Today, Representative Kathy Hochul (NY-26) sent a letter to House Republican and Democratic leadership continuing to urge passage of a five-year Farm Bill and ensure farmers in Western New York have the certainty and support they require.

"America's agricultural producers need the certainty of a real Farm Bill in order to make long term plans, invest in new capital, and expand their businesses," Hochul wrote. "Just as I have partnered with lawmakers across the country, and across the aisle, to further this critical priority for our country, I urge you to put the needs of America's farmers before partisan differences and immediately work to pass a comprehensive Farm Bill."

Today's letter is the second Rep. Hochul has sent to House leadership urging a vote on a five-year Farm Bill. The first was sent this past July.

With nearly 3,500 farms and an annual output of over $739 million in the 26th District alone, agriculture is an essential part of Western New York's economy and a key component of Hochul's REBUILD Plan.
