Novozymes on House Farm Bill Vote: "Missed" Chance to Support Rural America

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 16:16:50 CDT

Novozymes on House Farm Bill Vote:
Novozymes, a producer of enzymes that turn biomass into biofuels, today said the United States House of Representatives' decision not to pass a farm bill was a missed opportunity for America's farming communities. The House defeated the bill this afternoon 195-to-234.

"We had a chance to funnel more investment into America today, and do more to support our hard-working farmers. We missed it," said Adam Monroe, Novozymes Americas Regional President. "The world wants to know America is serious about growing its rural economy and putting more Americans to work in agriculture and energy. This bill offered the stable policy we needed. We particularly appreciated seeing strong support for the energy title programs during the House debate. We urge the House to find a solution and bring the farm bill back for a vote."

Earlier in June, the Senate passed its version of the farm bill with $800 million in funding for energy programs.
