Rural America faces its share of challenges in 2021 and wants to know what might be ahead in the 117th Congress for potential answers to those challenges. Agri-Pulse held a webinar to talk about some of the top rural issues in the new session. Republican Congressman Dusty Johnson of South Dakota notes that the Agriculture Committee has typically done business in a bipartisan fashion, but worries that bipartisanship may be harder to maintain in the new Congress.
He says residents of Rural America need to tell their representatives that bipartisanship is the key to success in farm country.
Johnson says three key issues need addressing to keep rural America on the right track.
Johnson says it’s a big year when it comes to developing the next farm bill.
Again, that’s South Dakota Representative Dusty Johnson.
