Leaders of the House and Senate Ag Committees Hesitant of Trump's Proposed Budget for 2018

Tue, 23 May 2017 17:50:18 CDT

Leaders of the House and Senate Ag Committees Hesitant of Trump's Proposed Budget for 2018 Following the release of the Trump administration’s FY 2018 budget proposal, House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) and Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) issued the joint statement below:



“We support the Trump administration’s goal of achieving three percent economic growth for our nation. USDA’s latest estimates find agriculture, food, and related industries contribute $992 billion to our economy. As we debate the budget and the next Farm Bill, we will fight to ensure farmers have a strong safety net so this key segment of our economy can weather current hard times and continue to provide all Americans with safe, affordable food. Also, as a part of Farm Bill discussions, we need to take a look at our nutrition assistance programs to ensure that they are helping the most vulnerable in our society.”
