Congressman Ralph Abraham

Representing the 5th District of Louisiana

Calling all Louisiana farmers: Here's your chance for input on Farm Bill

September 26, 2017
In The News

Louisiana farmers and ranchers who rely on the Farm Bill as America's agriculture safety net can help shape future policy at an ag summit scheduled by the state's only member of the House Agriculture Committee.

Congressman Ralph Abraham, R-Alto, has scheduled what he is calling a "listening session" at 8:30 a.m. Friday at Rayville High School. Farmers and ag leaders from throughout the state are invited, he said.

Abraham calls agriculture "America's thin green line."

"We're already having committee hearings for the 2018 Farm Bill," Abraham said in an interview with USA Today Network. "I want to know what's working and what's not working as we craft the new bill."
