House Ag Committee Chair Lucas Offers Reaction to State of the Union Address- and MoreWed, 25 Jan 2012 11:23:59 CST
The Chairman of the House Ag Committee, Oklahoma's Third District Congressman Frank Lucas, spent time on the long line from Washington Wednesday morning with Ed Richards of the Radio Oklahoma Network. Congressman Lucas offered his reaction to President Obama's State of the Union Address, as well as some of his ideas to move forward with the writing of the 2012 Farm Bill.
The Chairman would not offer a timeline on when we might see movement in the development of the 2012 bill- but instead told Richards that we will do what we can get done- and if we can't complete the process there is nothing wrong with an extension that would take us out another crop year.
The Chairman also offered his thoughts on the MF Global default- and about the status of his Committee in offering oversight when it comes to the continuing war on farmers and ranchers by Obama Administration regulators.
