Baucus to Hold Farm Bill Listening Sessions

by

Montana’s senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus is inviting Montana farmers to join him for two Farm Bill listening sessions in Forsyth and Miles City next week.

“Montana jobs depend on a Farm Bill that is responsive to our agriculture producers. I’m looking forward to hearing from folks in the Forsyth and Miles City areas to learn more about what’s working and what’s not working for our farming families,” said Baucus, a senior member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. “Montana farmers put food on tables across our state, our country and around the world. It’s my job to make sure their voices are heard when Farm Bill hearings come up in Washington. I want to make sure they have all the tools necessary to keep driving Montana’s economy forward.”

Baucus will be holding Farm Bill listening sessions across the state throughout the spring and summer to gather input and set priorities as he prepares to play a key role writing the next Farm Bill. The current Farm Bill is set to expire February 2012.

As Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee which has sole jurisdiction over international trade, Baucus has long championed efforts to open foreign markets to Montana’s farm exports. He recently took 15 Montana farmers and business owners on a trade mission to Colombia to highlight the need to pass a free trade agreement quickly.
