Trump signs new federal farm bill as the nation’s capital floods
- by admin
The White House signed a major farm bill into law on Monday, ushering in an unprecedented era of federal regulation that will expand farming in the nation.
The farm bill would give states more authority to set farming standards and allow states to set rules for farmers’ manure, pesticide and water use.
It’s a major victory for the Trump administration, which is trying to move beyond its “bipartisan” farm bill of 2016, which was passed by Congress with bipartisan support.
The legislation was written to make federal aid for farming more competitive with other forms of farming.
It would also make it easier for states to impose more regulations.
The bill is also a boon for farmers, who will now be able to grow the same food crops that they would have been able to do before the farm bill was passed.
The bill would also help states manage their own markets, giving them more flexibility to set their own regulations.
Trump’s farm bill is the first major legislative achievement by the Trump White House in more than two years.
It is also the first farm bill signed by a sitting president since President Donald Trump signed an executive order in April to create the American Farm Bureau Federation, a nonprofit that represents more than 1,400 U.S. farmers.
