Former Ag Committee chair says the current Farm Bill could possibly be extended

The Farm Bill deadline is just four months away, and there are growing concerns the important piece of legislation will not be done on time. However, Collin Peterson, the former House Ag Committee chair says that wouldn’t necessarily be a deal breaker.

“They could. I’d be surprised, but September 30th is not a drop-dead date. Nothing actually happens that day that’s going to cause any significant problems. I think they probably have till the end of the year to try to get something done. If it doesn’t get done by the end of the year, I think it’ll probably get extended. They’ll do a one-year extension, and then it’s an election year. I wouldn’t be surprised if you do a one-year extension, then you’ll end up with a two-year extension,” Peterson said.
