"Rough Road For Farm Bill As Divided Congress Takes Hold"

"A chaotic start to the new Republican-led House may spell trouble for the 2023 farm bill.

As Rep. Glenn Thompson begins his new job as Agriculture Committee chair, he faces significant challenges to make the five-year legislation bipartisan while managing pressure from his own party’s right flank.

Issues such as climate change and low-income nutrition programs are likely targets for the party’s most conservative members, and the Pennsylvania Republican has little room to maneuver with a thin majority, say lobbyists and policy groups."
