Sen. Pat Roberts on Farm Bill: "It's Not My First Rodeo"

June 13, 2018 06:31 AM

The Senate Agriculture Committee has a busy day. That's as leaders will markup the farm bill, considering more than 200 amendments. Chairman of the Senate Ag Committee Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) continues to say this isn't time for a revolutionary farm bill, instead it's time for evolutionary legislation. 

This is not a time for a revolutionary farm bill," said Roberts. "This is my eighth farm bill. So, it's not my first rodeo and it's not the first rodeo of the distinguished ranking member Senator Stabenow (D-Mich.)  and we've worked together in the past to produce a bipartisan bill, and that's what we're trying to do."
