RMFU Statement on Farm Bill Markup

Today, the House Agriculture Committee held a markup for the Farm, Food, and National Security Act of 2024. Rocky Mountain Farmers Union is disappointed that this legislation is making harmful cuts to important programs that farmers, ranchers, and our communities depend on. It will remove $30 Billion from nutrition funding, gut programs designed to support producers to adapt to increasingly erratic weather, and drive policies that will further lessen competition throughout the food value chain. Rocky Mountain Farmers Union is opposed to the current legislation as written, and we will advocate for strong amendments when it comes to a vote in the House. We will continue to work with our members of Congress and our partners to ensure that this Farm Bill provides the greatest benefits possible to our farmers, ranchers, and communities that we represent.
