U.S. Rep. Dan Newhouse is asking Central Washington farmers to submit their priorities for the upcoming 2023 Farm Bill discussions in Washington, D.C., according to a news release.
The deadline for submissions is June 7.
The Farm Bill, passed roughly every five years, is a legislative package that covers agricultural programs such as crop insurance, research and rural development. The current Farm Bill expires in September this year.
Newhouse, a Republican, owns a hop, cherry and wine grape farm near Sunnyside and represents Washington’s 4th Congressional District.
