House Ag Committee Chair Lucas Praises House Passage of Disaster Assistance Legislation, Urges Senate to Act Swiftly

Thu, 02 Aug 2012 21:41:01 CDT

House Ag Committee Chair Lucas Praises House Passage of Disaster Assistance Legislation, Urges Senate to Act Swiftly Chairman Frank Lucas of Oklahoma issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6233, Agricultural Disaster Assistance Act of 2012, by a vote of 223-197:


"Given that vast areas of productive pastureland are burning up and our agricultural producers are in dire need, I'm pleased that the House approved this disaster assistance measure. It provides risk management tools to those ranchers who are currently exposed. This is not a long-term solution, but it takes care of the problem until we can get a five-year farm bill on the books and put those policies in place. I am committed to giving certainty to our farmers and I plan to work toward that goal when we return in September. In the meantime, I urge the Senate to quickly pass this measure so that we can get assistance to our producers now," said Chairman Frank Lucas.
