Plains Cotton Growers Applauds Passage of H.R. 2

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 05:05:08 CDT

Plains Cotton Growers Applauds Passage of H.R. 2 Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., commends the U.S. House of Representatives for passing H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, which includes critical provisions for cotton producers that will ensure their long-term stability.

"This Farm Bill helps preserve the future of not only our family farms, but our entire industry," PCG President Stacy Smith said. "Our cotton producers know what it's like to operate without that safety net, and we need that stability and for our nation's agriculture to be strong and viable so we can continue to produce food, fiber and fuel for the future."

Smith noted PCG's appreciation to the House Agriculture Committee, Chairman Mike Conaway, House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, and PCG area representatives Jodey Arrington and Mac Thornberry.

"It is notable that every Texas Republican House Member voted for this bill, and we thank them for their support," Smith said. "We appreciate our friends in Congress, especially the House Agriculture Committee, who have been steadfast in their support and understanding of our needs. We look forward to continuing our work with the Senate, defeating harmful amendments, and moving this bill across the finish line."
