WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Suzan DelBene calls the farm bill passed by the U.S. House a ‘big win’ for Washington’s specialty crop farmers.
She says the bill gives unprecedented levels of funding for the specialty crop industry, including Whatcom County fruit and vegetable farmers.
The bill gives $800 million for specialty crop research.
The U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the farm bill next week.
