Farm groups have high hopes for new Congress

Farm groups hope the new Republican-led Congress can make some progress in the areas of water policy, immigration and other needs, the California Farm Bureau Federation reports.

From the group's Food and Farm News:
As the new Congress convenes, California farm groups say they will renew their efforts to pursue key issues at the federal level. A California Farm Bureau policy specialist says farmers want Congress to address issues such as water, immigration reform, taxes and foreign trade. Because Republicans now control both houses of Congress, farm groups say they expect more bills to pass but increased tension between Congress and the administration.
