COVER STORY

Navigating the 2023 Farm Bill

Irrigation infrastructure is critical infrastructure and should be treated as such, according to the Irrigation Association’s vice president of advocacy and public affairs.

The farm bill is an omnibus, multiyear bill that supports vital programs in agriculture and social welfare in America. According to a report from the Congressional Research Service, the farm bill “provides an opportunity for policymakers to comprehensively and periodically address agricultural and food issues.” The legislative package is renewed every five years, and there have been 18 bills passed since its inception in the 1930s.
