President Barack Obama signed the five-year farm bill into law at the Michigan State University Friday – just days after the U.S. Senate approved the measure.
Illinois Farm Bureau President Rich Guebert Jr. applauded the news.
“I’m glad, happy it’s over,” he said. “For Illinois farmers, it’s really a good package and a good bill that went forward.”
Guebert complimented legislators, who he said kept farmers’ interests in mind when crafting the bill. He also thanked IFB members who made phone calls urging Congress to pass it.
