Congressman Daines Addresses Congress' Issues

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

More than 100 people gathered at the Northern Hotel for the Yellowstone Republican Women's Spring Luncheon on Friday.

Congressman Steve Daines was the keynote speaker at the event. Daines discussed current issues facing Congress, including the Keystone Pipeline and the Farm Bill.

The lawmaker tells KULR-8 what the future holds for the Farm Bill, and if another temporary extension is a possibility.

"It's a possibility certainly but it's not the outcome that we want. It's June, we're coming to the end of this month and we have until the end of September to get this problem solved. And I'll be fighting back in Washington. A one year extension is not the right answer, a five-year Farm Bill is the right answer," said Daines.
