American Soybean Association "Disappointed" by Farm Bill's Failure to Pass in the House Floor Vote

Fri, 18 May 2018 12:50:53 CDT

American Soybean Association The American Soybean Association (ASA) expressed deep disappointment with the U.S. House of Representatives failure today to pass H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018. ASA calls on the U.S. House of Representatives to continue to work to seek passage of a Farm Bill this year to provide certainty and stability for growers.


“Plain and simple: the farm bill matters," said ASA President and Iowa soybean grower John Heisdorffer. "U.S. soybean growers and everyone involved in agriculture depend on this vital piece of legislation. This bill provides a farm safety net, improves conservation, places value on exports and feeds our nation.”


ASA was pleased with the outcome of several amendments, including strong votes to defeat amendments that would have eliminated vital farm programs.


“Soybean growers are facing a down farm economy and significant export uncertainty, and are relying on a strong farm bill," Heisdorffer said. "The House failure to pass a farm bill only adds to the uncertainty across rural America.”
