More assistance may be on the way, even though the details and timing remain unclear, according to Paul Bleiberg, vice president for government relations at the National Milk Producers Federation.

“It’s hard to tell exactly what will happen, but I think we will see some kind of a give-and-take between House Democrats, Senate Republicans and obviously the administration as well,” Bleiberg said in an NMPF podcast.
