Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts Praises House Passage of Farm Bill

Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts Praises House Passage of Farm Bill
The passage Wednesday of the 2014 Farm Bill by the U.S. House of Representatives is great news for rural Oklahoma according to Kim Farber, President of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD).

“We are extremely pleased that the House of Representatives took action this week to pass a new comprehensive Farm Bill that not only provides certainty for farmers and ranchers but also continues to give us the tools we need to help protect our natural resources while we feed and clothe the world,” Farber said. “We especially are grateful for all the hard work and leadership shown by Oklahoma’s own Congressman Frank Lucas, Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, in putting together this compromise bill and then shepherding it through the House. It’s a good bill not just for rural Oklahoma, but for all of America.”

Farber said that the next step in the journey of the Farm Bill is consideration by the full U.S. Senate which is expected early next week.

“It’s our hope that the Senate will follow the action of the House by passing this critical measure on to the President for his signature,” Farber said. “It’s a good compromise bill that reduces spending over $16 billion while still providing the tools necessary to protect our environment and support agriculture and rural America. It’s time to move this issue forward.”
