The Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries made a stop to the Wiregrass today.
John McMillan was here for the board's quarterly meeting.
He did talk about the farm bill.
He says their department will be able to get a little bit more money to their specialty crop grant program in Alabama, but he didn't know how much.
He says there is still a lot to learn about the new bill.
"Instead of having substitutes they will have protection on the downside of insurance the safety net type work I think I think that is going to be the biggest impact on farmers but we really needed to get the Farm Bill passed because farming season is rapidly approaching."
During his time here tour several local companies.
