Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The future of agriculture is a hot topic in North Dakota.
State officials and farmers gathered for the annual farm bureau, an agenda item: the farm bill.
While farmers are frustrated with the delay, Senator Heidi Heidi Heitkamp says she remains optimistic that a farm bill will be passed yet this year.
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D, North Dakota: “I think there's going to be a big push when we get back to make that happen. I think American agriculture needs to stand up and say no get it done.”
North Dakota's Farm Bureau spokesperson says the big hang up with the bill seems to be the nutrition program.
