Farmer says farm bill, redistricting are top concerns

A central Illinois farmer says the midterm elections could impact the 2023 Farm Bill process.

Rob Shaffer raises soybeans, corn, and Angus cattle.

“Farm Bill hearings are starting already, but it’s hard to start talking Farm Bill and who’s going to write it when you don’t know who’s going to be in control of the House and Senate come January 2023,” he says. “But, we are starting that process already and we have some really good champions in both the House and Senate that are great to work with.”  

He says the redistricting of congressional boundaries is also top of mind this year.
