Representative Noem and other lawmakers work on Farm Bill


South Dakota's Representative Kristi Noem is working on writing a final draft of the 2013 Farm Bill. Wednesday was the first meeting of the Farm Bill Conference Committee.

The group of Senators and Representatives will work to merge the farm bills passed by both the House and the Senate into one piece of legislation. The  Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee says after the natural disasters that have affected farmers and ranchers, something has to be done.    

"The blizzard of not many weeks ago that reaped such havoc across the Dakotas stand as a solemn reminder," said Representative Frank Lucas, R-Oklahoma.

Noem is the first house member from South Dakota to be appointed as a member of the Farm Bill Conference Committee since 1996.
