Max Armstrong shares some key ag-related issues Congress will be discussing this week in Washington

Max Armstrong offers some issues for ag policy that Congress will take up besides continued impeachment proceedings. As World Food Day occurs, there will be hearings on the Hill regarding proposed changes to the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. There are concerns about the way key factors including utility costs are figured. And there’s the challenge of getting the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement approved too.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
