Lujan Grisham Named to Farm Bill Conference Committee

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) released the following statement after being named to serve on the Farm Bill conference committee. Conferees will meet with their Senate counterparts over the coming weeks to reconcile the differences between the House and Senate Farm Bills:

“I am pleased to accept this role as recognition of the Farm Bill’s importance to New Mexican families and of the House Democratic Conferees’ ability to find bipartisan solutions. Throughout the Farm Bill conference negotiations, I will work to advance the interests of families, farmers, and ranchers by protecting the SNAP Program and investing in broadband, water conservation, and trade promotion. I am committed to working collaboratively to negotiate a bipartisan Farm Bill that provides solutions, creates economic opportunities for New Mexico, and will pass in both chambers and be signed by the President.”
