House Ag Leaders Conaway, Peterson Praise House's Passage of 2018 Farm Bill Conference Report

Wed, 12 Dec 2018 17:44:00 CST

House Ag Leaders Conaway, Peterson Praise House's Passage of 2018 Farm Bill Conference Report Today the House of Representatives passed the 2018 Farm Bill conference report, sending the bill to the president’s desk for his signature. Upon passage, House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) made the following remarks:


“House Republicans refused to stop fighting for rural America and today we’ve approved a bill that sets us on a better path – for farmers and ranchers, for rural communities, and for the American consumer. I am proud of the work we have done to fight for the hard-working farm and ranch families who feed and clothe this nation, to fight for better policy that strengthens the farm safety net and our rural communities, improves conservation initiatives, expands exports, and enhances the integrity of our nutrition programs.



“I’ve maintained from the beginning that this farm bill ought to be about standing up for America’s farm and ranch families who are going through some very hard times. And we have kept faith with that commitment. Farm country and rural America will be better off under this farm bill than they were before. I want to thank our leadership in the House, Sec. Perdue and President Trump. Because of our work this year, rural America and farm and ranch country know we have their backs.”



House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson released the following statement as well:


“I am very happy to see my colleagues pass the 2018 Farm Bill. As I said in my floor speech, rural America is facing so many challenges and this bill goes a long way toward providing needed certainty to farmers and ranchers. In particular, I am proud of the improvement it makes for our dairy farmers. The bill will provide expanded, affordable coverage options and more flexibility for dairy farmers. It also provides permanent mandatory funding for several of the programs that first got mandatory funding in the 2008 farm bill, when I was chairman. These include the Local Food & Farmers Market Promotion Program, Value-Added Producer Grants, the BFRDP Program, Organic Research, and the Section 2501 Outreach Program. I encourage President Trump to sign the farm bill into law quickly.”
