National Corn Growers Association Director of Public Policy Wayne Stopskof sat on a panel during the Northern Corn and Soybean Expo. Farm bill negotiations are still happening in Washington. “We’re hoping the appropriations process will finalize soon and allow floor time and get a markup from the committee,” said Wayne Stopskof, director of public policy, National Corn Growers Association. While there is still some hope of getting a multi-year, bipartisan farm bill done ahead of the presidential election, it is possible a farm bill could be passed during a lame duck session following election day. “There’s a lot of attention to that so we can avoid using the “e” word, which would be an extension for another year.”
