Congressman Miller advances 2024 farm bill in committee

By Jamie Martin

On May 24, U.S. Congressman Max Miller (OH-07) played a pivotal role in advancing the Farm, Food, and National Security Act of 2024 out of the House Agriculture Committee. The bill passed with a bipartisan vote of 33 – 21, reflecting broad support and collaborative efforts.

Miller emphasized his commitment to enhancing both agriculture and consumer benefits through the Farm Bill. He successfully integrated provisions from his Farm to Fly Act, passed unanimously by voice vote, which aims to improve the sustainability and efficiency of U.S. agriculture and energy resources.

The Congressman also acknowledged Ohio State University’s contributions, particularly from the Wooster Campus, in advancing agricultural technology and innovation. His work with the Agriculture Advisory Council, which includes prominent Ohio farm leaders, helped shape the bill to address critical areas such as farm safety nets, trade expansion, animal health, and food affordability.

Key initiatives from Miller in the Farm Bill include:

  • Food Supply Chain Capacity and Resiliency Act to strengthen the food supply and reduce consumer costs.
  • Mechanization and Automation Accelerated Research Act to promote technology-driven agriculture.
  • Training and Nutrition Stability Act to link SNAP benefits with workforce training.

These measures aim to enhance the agricultural sector's productivity and sustainability while making food more accessible and affordable across America.
