Senator Rounds discuss the upcoming farm bill

PIERRE, S.D.(KELO)- Members of Congress are on recess right now, but when they return to Washington, the 5-year farm bill will be waiting for them.

Representative Dusty Johnson and Senator John Thune are on the agriculture committees in their chambers.

Senator Mike Rounds hopes this is the year we see action on “Country of Origin” labeling.

Country of Origin labeling has been on the wish list of farm state lawmakers for decades.

Whether it’s the State Fair or your local county fair…it’s the time of year when politicians begin making their appearances.
Senator Rounds says it’s critical to keep a strong safety net for producers.

Rounds will be at DakotaFest Wednesday & at the Brown County Fair on Thursday.  Senator Rounds’ staff will have a booth available for the full week at the fair.
