The new Farm Bill was officially signed into law by President Obama, Friday, which is good news for a lot of farmers and ranchers across South Dakota.
Saturday, Congresswoman Kristi Noem visited consumers at a Sioux Falls Hy-Vee store about the farm bill's impact on grocery bills and food to feed our families. Noem had hopes this would have passed a year ago but after spending nearly 70% of her time trying to educate more urban lawmakers, she says it was time to see it signed.
"I think our hard work really paid off in the fact that, even though it was late, it has been messy, and a big detriment to ranchers and producers, we have a more educated public and congress on why it is important. Maybe that will be our one silver lining through this process we've been through," Rep. Kristi Noem said.
Rep. Noem continues the tour 'Field to Fork Rally' Monday with a stop in Aberdeen.
