Farm Bill Listening Session, Missoula MT




(Great Falls, Mont.) – Senator Jon Tester on Friday will be holding his third Barnstormin’ Farm Bill Listening Session in Missoula at the University of Montana.  This listening session will primarily focus on timber harvest and conservation.


“The Farm Bill provides us a real opportunity to break through the gridlock in our national forests and construct an active forest management plan that will promote conservation and get folks back to work in the woods,” Tester said.

The Farm Bill expires in September 2018, but Congress will hold hearings and begin the work of rewriting the Farm Bill early next year.


In 2014, Tester was able to secure a number of Montana priorities in the current Farm Bill, including a number of timber projects.


Tester hosted his first Farm Bill event in Billings earlier this month, and his second in the Flathead last week.
