"I am pleased the Senate passed the conference report and put us
another step closer to enacting a new farm bill. I commend
Chairwoman Stabenow and ranking member Cochran on their efforts
throughout this process. We worked together to give certainty
and sound policy to our agricultural producers, deliver
taxpayers billions of dollars in savings, and provide consumers
the affordable and reliable food supply they have grown
accustomed to," Lucas said.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the conference report
on Jan. 29 by a strong vote of 251-166.
