Lawmakers unveil farmer relief proposals

Local News

Help could be on the way for struggling Wisconsin farmers.

Legislators released three proposals that aim to provide relief to farmer’s pocketbooks.

One bill would create two new positions in the UW system, specializing in passing down farms to younger generations.

The other two will offer student debt forgiveness and small-scale grants for farmers.

The bills were introduced by Democrats, but there is bi-partisan support for each of the proposals.
