Congressman Rodney Davis has been active in the formulation of agriculture policy in Washington, D.C. since he started in the nation's capital, and those efforts continue with a new administration in power.

 

Congressman Davis is touting the recent CFAP payments to farmers that are going out soon. He credits Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack for his work in continuing this program and the Taylorville Republican is looking forward to working more on ag issues with him.

 

 

Congressman Davis says the current farm bill has been a success and built on a very good version of the farm bill of 2014. He is proud of the ARC and TLC provisions of the farm bill and input from local farmers on those.

 

 

New House committee assignments recently came out and Davis remains in many of the same roles he has served in the past. He remains excited to be on those committees because of the bipartisan work done with his peers.

 

 

The Taylorville Republican also serves on the highway and transportation sub-committee. Davis indicates they will be getting to work soon on the next farm bill, up next year.
