The Moore You Know Ag Update Hi, friends – While there is a lot of uncertainty on Capitol Hill these days between government funding and House leadership, there is one thing we can be certain of: newly elected Speaker Mike Johnson wants to pass a farm bill by December. The farmers, ranchers, foresters and invested stakeholders in Alabama Second Congressional District can hopefully rest a little easier knowing the House leader supports a strong and swift 2023 Farm Bill Reauthorization. Please keep reading to learn more about House Agriculture Committee activity, Farm Bill engagement, and other resources you may find helpful. Sincerely, Congressman Barry Moore Committee Happenings The House Committee on Agriculture held the majority of its 2023 Farm Bill hearings last Congress and earlier this year. While the committee’s public calendar is quiet, committee staff is at work with Member offices, House leadership and the Four Corners - majority and minority staffs in both Congressional chambers - to continue drafting base text. While the House Agriculture Committee has primary referral on farm bill issues, other committees work alongside authroizers to carry out agricultural programming.

Now more than ever, it’s important that contract poultry growers have risk management tools available when unavoidable, total loss impacts their current and near-term flocks. H.Res. 760: National 4-H Week Resolution Recently, I joined my colleagues in the 4-H Caucus to designate the week of Oct. 1 as National 4-H Week to celebrate young agricultural leaders. Through youth development, mentorship and education, the National 4-H Council is developing the next generation of leaders in agriculture.

Read USDA's press release here. Nutrition policy oversight Recently, the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a proposed rule to “improve” their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program quality control protocols. With the nutrition title consuming more than 80 percent of the farm bill’s mandatory baseline at a time when the farm gate is in real trouble, I can appreciate oversight on SNAP; however, the USDA is trying to administratively codify phone interviews as the primary avenue of identity verification when auditing benefit recipients for fraud. Simply put, USDA is attempting to remove the “human” from human services. Would you like to see oversight on USDA-FNS' proposed rule? Yes Select No Select Want Moore?
