Kirkpatrick Praises Farm Bill Passage, Funding for District
“This is a good day for rural Arizona," Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick said after passage of the Farm Bill today. "My district has a long history of farming and ranching – my family had a ranch in the White Mountains – so we know firsthand the importance of a Farm Bill to our local economies."
"I was especially pleased that this Farm Bill funds the PILT (payment in lieu of taxes) program, which helps rural counties in my district carry out vital services such as firefighting, law enforcement and construction of public schools and roads," she said. "Earlier this year, I called on both parties to work together and craft a bipartisan Farm Bill we can all support. That’s what happened today – and it’s good day for the farmers, families and local economies across District One and our nation.”
