Noem: Farm Bill framework to be done within a week

Posted:

The farm bill isn't done yet, but South Dakota's lone U.S. House Representative expects it will be soon. That's good news to farmers and ranchers nationwide, especially those in KOTA Territory hard hit during the October blizzard.

Republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem says they made great progress toward reaching a farm bill deal in a meeting Wednesday morning. Congress is pushing toward a final agreement that could be a year-end bright spot. Representative Noem says they're hoping to have a draft done within the next couple of weeks, and then it will head to the floor for a vote.

Representative Noem also presents a bill Thursday, that if passed, will change the federal school lunch diet restrictions.
