How will the midterms affect ag laws and policy? Jan. 25 webinar discusses the implications

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — What impact will the 2022 midterm elections have on agricultural law and policy? Hunt Shipman, principal and director at Cornerstone Government Affairs, will discuss the implications during a webinar Jan. 25.

“Looking Ahead: Impact of the 2022 Elections on Ag Law and Policy” is next installment in the National Agricultural Law Center’s outreach series. The Jan. 25 webinar begins at noon EST/11 a.m. CST. There is no cost to attend and attendees can register online.

“Now that the elections are behind us, the stage is set for what will be a complicated year for agriculture, especially given the current composition of Congress and pending expiration of the 2018 Farm Bill,” Shipman said. “The tight margins between the parties in both chambers of Congress adds an extra wrinkle in 2023 to the budgeting, appropriations, and Farm Bill processes.”

There are many issues at play for agriculture, both in Congress and at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies. Most provisions of the 2018 Farm Bill are set to expire in 2023, something Congress will be debating in the months ahead.

“The stakes are always high for agriculture, especially in a Farm Bill year, and 2023 is no exception. Hunt has excellent insight relative to the overall legislative and regulatory process,” NALC Director Harrison Pitman said. “Hunt will tell us the state of play for the Farm Bill and other ag-related legislative and regulatory activity.”
