Ag funding included in Senate debate

The full U.S. Senate is considering the first three appropriation bills to fund the government for Fiscal Year 2024.

Ranking Member of the Senate Ag Committee John Boozman says the Senate Appropriations Committee, which he also serves on, passed all 12 of its bills, “that fund everything from agriculture to the defense,” he says.  “We want to make sure that the funding continues uninterrupted.”

He tells Brownfield the Appropriations Committee unanimously passed the legislation currently under consideration which includes nearly $26 billion in funding for the USDA.
