Kathryn Boor, food scientist and the dean of Cornell University’s top-ranked College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, calls out Congress for its continued lack of action on a comprehensive Farm Bill, and warns that ongoing legislative failure will hurt every household in America.

Boor says:

“The inability to get a Farm Bill in place will touch every household in the U.S., starting with ramping up the price of our milk to eventually increasing the sticker prices on a variety of foods.

“It’s time to put politics behind us and focus on the things that matter: improving the quality of life for our citizens.”
