1300 Longworth House Office Building Washington, D.C. Full Committee – Public Hearing RE: Rural Economic Outlook: Setting the Stage for the Next Farm Bill Upon announcing the hearing, Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway issued the following statement:
"As we prepare for the upcoming farm bill reauthorization, farmers and ranchers are enduring challenging times. USDA reported this week that net farm income fell 45 percent from 2013 to 2016, the largest 3-year percentage drop since the Great Depression. Net farm income is expected to decline even further in 2017. Our hearing, Rural Economic Outlook: Setting the Stage for the Next Farm Bill will feature a panel of distinguished economists who will discuss the challenges faced by farmers and ranchers and provide context for the needs of rural America in the next Farm Bill."
