Thank you for contacting me about the next Farm Bill. It's good to hear from you.
Agriculture is important to our state. We need to do all we can to help protect small family farms across Maryland. The Farm Bill is critical because it authorizes funding for food production, conservation, hunger, nutrition, research, and energy programs for five years. Knowing of your agricultural priorities will be helpful to me as the Senate continues to work on this important issue.
Again, thanks for writing. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you in the future.
Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator
