KINGSTON, N.Y. -- Congressman Chris Gibson joins Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo and other local officials in Kingston today to discuss the local impact on the Farm Bill.
Gibson is a member of the House Agriculture Committee, and played a key role in drafting the bill and incorporating provisions that'll benefit the 19th Congressional District, which includes most of the Hudson Valley.
President Obama signed the bill earlier this month.
The new law will provide a financial cushion for farmers who face unpredictable weather and market conditions, and will also cut the food stamp program by about one percent.
