Former House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas Pleased to See 2018 Farm Bill Proposal Introduced- Ready for Mark Up

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 18:51:00 CDT

Former House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas Pleased to See 2018 Farm Bill Proposal Introduced- Ready for Mark Up – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry, released the following statement upon introduction of the Agricultural and Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2).


“I am pleased to see the next Farm Bill introduced and filed today,” said Congressman Lucas. “A comprehensive Farm Bill is critical in supporting the efforts of our country’s hardworking farmers and ranchers to provide the most cost effective, plentiful, and safest food supply in the world. This legislation builds off the strengths of the 2014 Farm Bill and represents the best safety net for agricultural producers in challenging economic times.”


“As Chairman of the Conservation and Forestry Subcommittee, I am also encouraged to see that Conservation Reserve Program acreage numbers have been increased by five million and voluntary conservation programs such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) will receive robust funding.”


Markup of the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 will take place on Wednesday, April 18th.
