Farm Bill approved by Congress, addresses issues faced by Central Coast farmers


December 2018

Tim Cansler, a federal advocate for the California Agricultural  Commissioners and Sealers Association, said that while this bill was  largely status quo, it also included many new non-traditional programs  that attracted support from members who otherwise might have not have  supported it. 

Some of the provisions established permanent baseline funding for  some non-traditional forms of agriculture, such as organic crops;  locally or regionally produced agricultural foods; urban, indoor and  other emerging agricultural production; and the legalization of  industrial hemp production. 

That all led to a landslide vote, Cansler wrote in an email to the Sun

"It was the largest vote of support for a farm bill in history," he said.
