DeLauro Statement On House Farm Bill Vote

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) released the following statement after the House of Representatives failed to pass the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act, commonly referred to as the farm bill. The bill failed 195-234.

"The farm bill is a safety net for American farmers and families. In 2008, I was proud to support a bipartisan farm bill. Unfortunately, this was not the case today. The farm bill before the House of Representatives would have harmed both Connecticut dairy farmers and families relying on food stamps. I hope Congress can now work across party lines to produce a balanced farm bill that supports both farmers and critical anti-hunger efforts."
