Congress working on the next Farm Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- Discussions are beginning on the framework of the next five year Farm Bill, which has to be approved next year.

South Dakota Senator John Thune says those talks are starting with a potential global food shortage looming.

Thune says the war in Ukraine is having a direct impact on worldwide grain stocks.

Thune says a big crop this year is a necessity.

Thune, a member of the Senate Ag Committee, will be working on his fifth Farm Bill.
