Farm bill signed


Gov. Mike Parson made a stop near Long Lane Thursday and promised to take support for agriculture to “a whole new level.”
Parson visited the Bruce Bradley family family farm in the Long Lane community to sign an agriculture bill.
During his stop, Parson talked about what he sees as the state’s top needs, including infrastructure improvements.
“We’ve got to figure out a way to (improve) our highways, our bridges, our airports, our riverways. To have opportunities in the state, we need to grow,” he said.
Parson said that these improvements would have a cost.
“You guys are all farmers here, and I don’t know how to sugarcoat it, but it’s going to cost something. We’ve got to figure out a solution of how we’re going to pay for that. You’re going to have an option in November to decide whether you want to help with that or you don’t. It’s one of the biggest issues we’re facing and I’d like to see agriculture lead the way on that.”
