FASEB submitted comments to the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry regarding the forthcoming 2018 Farm Bill. The comments were adapted from the USDA chapter of the fiscal year (FY) 2018 FASEB Federal Funding Report and stated that FASEB “respectfully urges the committee to reauthorize the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) at a funding level of at least $700 million in the forthcoming Farm Bill.” The Farm Bill authorizes numerous agriculture, nutrition, and related programs.
