Various scenarios regarding the midterm election could impact federal farm and food policy. Naturally, the election will decide which parties will take the majority in the House and Senate and which party assumes control of committees, according to Michael Torrey of Michael Torrey and Associates.

The party majority isn?t the only factor, however. Different states will have different priorities they?ll want to pursue. Torrey said it?s important to also consider where the lawmakers come from.

Urban lawmakers usually have slightly different priorities as well. Torrey said they often focus on climate and sustainability.

The Farm Bill expires September 30, 2023, and while that may seem like a long time yet, Torrey said that day will come quicker than you think.
