Tom Cole Praises Farm Bill Conference Report Passage by House

Tom Cole Praises Farm Bill Conference Report Passage by House
Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) praised today's passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014. It is the final product of the joint conference committee that reconciled differences between the farm bills of the House and Senate. By repealing or making changes to various programs and reducing regulations, this bill saves taxpayers $23 billion in mandatory federal spending.

"Today's bipartisan vote on the farm bill conference report is a victory for both rural and urban America," said Cole. "Despite competing interests on both sides of the aisle, this legislation shows that both chambers of Congress and the Administration can come together and get work done. Not only does this bill save taxpayers $23 billion in mandatory federal spending, but adoption of this five-year farm bill also restores certainty to farmers, ranchers and consumers. This achievement would not have been possible without the leadership, dedication and great skill of my friend and colleague House Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas, who has worked tirelessly over the last four years to find spending reductions and prioritize valuable programs."
