Congressman Randy says Iowa Farmers could see action on a new farm bill over the next few weeks. Feenstra, a Republican from Hull, expects the Farm Bill will come up for a vote in the U-S House in late March or early April.

The Farm Bill sets a five year outline for crop insurance subsidies and food assistance programs. Congress did not approve a new farm bill last year, instead agreeing to a one year extension that runs through this fall. Feenstra spoke with reporters in Des Moines after filing nearly 38-hundred signatures on nominating papers for the June Primary. Feenstra, who represents Iowa’s fourth congressional district, is seeking a third term in the U.S. House. He faces a primary challenge from Kevin Virgil, a former Army Ranger and CIA officer who has the backing of former Congressman Steve King. Feenstra defeated King in the 2020 GOP Primary Election.
