Home > News > Farm Bill Timeline Extends Past Deadline, says Rep. Thompson

The U.S. Congress will likely extend the 2018 farm bill due to not having a new bill prepared by the Sept. 30 deadline, according to House Ag Chairman Glenn Thompson. This is the first direct acknowledgment that the 2023 farm bill will be late. Thompson says the House continues to work on a bill they hope to be signed into law by the end of the year, with the extension only needing to be short-term.

However, like anything in policy, Thompson says, “Nothing is absolute.” Lawmakers will give priority in September to voting on annual government funding bills, where the farm bill could take secondary importance.
