A scaled-back version of the Build Back Better Act is expected as Congress gets back to work in the New Year. National Farmers Union President Rob Larew says there’s no clear path forward yet. “What’s encouraging to me is folks are starting to talk more about compromises. To me, that’s the ultimate pathway to a deal. There will be bargaining and pushing back and forth, but the fact they are continuing to talk, I’ll take that as a positive. They want to get it done and the sooner the better in a year like this.” The current Build Back Better Act has $90 billion in agriculture, forestry and nutrition provisions.
