SDFU President on state policy matching national policy proposals

SOUTH DAKOTA(WNAX)- Several state policy proposals of the South Dakota Farmers Union line up with their national group. State Farmers Union President Doug Sombke says one of their goals is to address the concentration problem that is hurting farmers and ranchers across the country.

He says solutions at both the national and state level need to be found with specific legislation as those problems are hitting farmers and ranchers and consumers the same way.

Sombke points to specific bills that call for holding large companies accountable for how they’re impacting agriculture.

Sombke says it’s critical that ag and non ag interests work together with members of both political parties to achieve solutions that benefit everybody.
