As the farm bill moves to the House, S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, takes the spotlight in the Senate. The 900-page
immigration reform bill, which covers a gamut of topics, from border security to agricultural guestworker programs, is expected to be the topic of conversation in the Senate until the July 4 recess.
Farm Bureau supports the passage of S. 744 — specifically the agricultural provisions of the bill — and is asking members to contact their senators
in support of the bill.
