Last year, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that people working in agriculture – including farmers, farm laborers, ranchers, fishers and lumber harvesters – take their lives at a rate higher than any other occupation. The data suggested that the suicide rate for agricultural workers in 17 states was nearly five times higher compared with that in the general population.
A tough topic to broach at this time of year, but one worth reading. In the U.S., the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-8255.
Today, the House Agriculture Committee launched a new farm bill landing page to share details and information on the upcoming farm bill. Find more information at https://agriculture.house.gov/farmbill.
Both the House and Senate have now passed tax reform bills, albeit with differences that still must be resolved before a new measure is passed into law.
Recall that in an interview last month, House Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway explained that with respect to the timing of the Farm Bill, “I’m hopeful that the muscle memory of having passed a big deal [tax reform] that’s big for America, that we’ll move right to the farm bill and get it passed across the House floor, which I believe will be another big deal for America, to get it done on time.” The Texas Republican added that, “So I’m hopeful the first quarter of next year.”
