Congressman Frank Lucas Reacts to Farm Bill's Defeat in US House from Washington with Ron Hays

Mon, 21 May 2018 15:16:50 CDT

Congressman Frank Lucas Reacts to Farm Bill's Defeat in US House from Washington with Ron Hays Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry, released the following statement today upon the House’s failure to pass the Agricultural and Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2). He also spoke with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays from Washington after the bill's defeat to offer his reaction. Listen to their complete phone conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.



“I am disappointed that the House has failed to pass the 2018 Farm Bill,” said Congressman Lucas. “This legislation builds upon the successes of the 2014 Farm Bill by protecting the safety net for producers and ensuring our fellow citizens have access to affordable, high quality food. Low commodity prices have created a challenging environment for our country’s farmers and ranchers so the farm safety net is more important than ever in providing producers with much-needed economic certainty.”



“For the sake of farmers and ranchers across rural America and the consumers who rely on access to safe and affordable products, we must begin the Farm Bill process in a timely manner. The previous Farm Bill presented similar challenges, and I am committed to continuing a dialogue with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to move this process forward.”
