Ron Hays Hosts House Ag Committee Chair Frank Lucas at Ag Townhall During OKC Farm Show

Ron Hays Hosts House Ag Committee Chair Frank Lucas at Ag Townhall During OKC Farm Show The Radio Oklahoma Ag Network hosted an Ag Townhall Meeting featuring a conversation between Farm Director Ron Hays and the Chairman of the House Ag Committee, Frank Lucas. Hays and the Chairman looked at the evolution of the 2012, 2013 and finally the 2014 Farm Bill- which eventually was passed into law earlier this year as the Agricultural Act of 2014.

Congressman Lucas summarized the three year journey of developing a new five year farm bill, offering some insights of the highs and the lows he felt as the House Ag Committee passed a bill that was not considered on the floor in 2012, passed a bill that was defeated in June 2013 on the floor of the US House- and then finally a measure was approved in the House, went to Conference Committee where common ground was found and sent back to the House and Senate for a final vote- then signed into law by President Barrack Obama.

Lucas talked aboiut many aspects of the bill, including the federal farm safety net, the crop insurance aspects of the measure, conservation and nutrition. Questions and comments were also put to the Congressman by representatives of the Oklahoma Wheat Growers, the Oklahoma Cattlemen, Oklahoma Farm Bureau, the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts and American Farmers and Ranchers.
