Sorghum Producers Praise House Passage of the Farm BillWed, 29 Jan 2014 10:54:27 CST
National Sorghum Producers commended the House of Representatives for coming together and finally passing the Agriculture Act of 2014, H.R. 2642, by a vote of 251-166.
“The hard work and tenacity demonstrated by agriculture committee leadership is to be commended,” said J.B. Stewart, NSP chairman and sorghum farmer from Keyes, Okla. “It’s been a long road but the process thorough, and NSP applauds Chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) and their staffs for successfully bringing a good farm bill across the House floor.”
NSP says the bill achieves substantial budget savings but maintains balanced and solid protection for America’s farmers and ranchers and that NSP looks forward to the Senate vote and hopes to see it through to fruition.
