Stabenow Pledges Bipartisan Approach to Farm Bill


Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.)

In an address to the Michigan Agri-Business Association’s Winter Conference, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), the new chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, promised a bipartisan approach to the 2012 farm bill. She also said sound science must drive agricultural policy.

“With almost 7 billion mouths to feed around the globe, we need American leadership in innovation, biotechnology and increased efficiency to make it possible to feed the world,” Stabenow said. “To foster that innovation, we need a regulatory system that is science-based and efficient—and we also need to open up markets.”
