From Tri-state Livestock News:

“If we are serious about tackling our nation’s spending problem, then we cannot be afraid to enact the common-sense reforms to our farm safety net that were outlined in President Trump’s budget for fiscal year 2019,” Norman said in a statement as Congress left town last week. “Congressman Gosar and myself are proud of the support that this bill has already earned from respected conservative groups like the R Street Institute, FreedomWorks, Taxpayers for Common Sense, and the National Taxpayers Union, and we look forward to continuing to advocate for reining in taxpayer spending on farm subsidies without jeopardizing the generous safety net that our nation provides to farmers.”

Norman’s statement included endorsements from several conservative groups.

Caroline Kitchens, federal affairs manager at the R Street Institute, said, “With farm bill reauthorization on the horizon, now is the time to enact common-sense reforms to right-size the farm safety net. The reforms represented in this bill are a crucial first step for ending the cronyism and waste rampant in our farm-support programs.”
