Today Congressman David Scott (GA-13), a member of the House Agriculture Committee, has been selected to serve on the conference committee on the 2018 Farm Bill. The conference committee will be tasked with reconciling the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill.
“I am honored to serve on the conference committee for the 2018 Farm Bill,” said Congressman David Scott. “This historic legislation will reauthorize U.S. Department of Agriculture policies and programs through 2023. That is why I will use this critical opportunity to fight to protect the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), expand scholarships for students of the nineteen 1890s Land Grant Colleges and Universities, and strengthen resources for Georgia’s farmers and producers who make agriculture our state’s leading industry.”
