Dear Democratic Colleague,
Next week, House Republicans plan to push forward a partisan, radical Farm Bill that fails America’s farmers and food-insecure families. House Republicans’ proposal was unanimously rejected by House Agriculture Committee Democrats, led by Ranking Member Collin Peterson.
I am writing to strongly urge all Democratic Members to refrain from offering or cosponsoring amendments, so that we can reject this bad bill and return to the table to craft a balanced, robust Farm Bill. This bad bill reflects a bad process, in which the GOP leadership cynically rejected a decades-long bipartisan tradition that weds our rural and urban communities together.
