Farm Bureau's Zippy Duvall Calls Committee Passage of 2018 Farm Bill Great News for Farmers and RanchersWed, 18 Apr 2018 17:09:28 CDT
American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall offered the following statement after the straight party vote of 26 to 20 as the House Ag Committee advanced the 2018 Farm Bill out of Committee on Wednesday:
“The 2018 Farm Bill is ready for debate and amendments a mere six days after its introduction. A vote by the full House of Representatives is expected to soon follow. This is great news for farmers and ranchers everywhere. H.R. 2 – The Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 - takes us one step closer to bringing certainty to families who face the toughest farm economy in more than a decade.
“We look forward to working with members of both the House and Senate to complete work on a bipartisan, bicameral bill that can be signed into law by the president before the current law expires.”
