Today, Representative Tim Walz released the following statement after the House of Representatives failed to pass a bipartisan five-year Farm Bill. Walz voted in support of the bill.
"Washington is broken and it's long past time for folks out here to get things done and stop viewing compromise as a dirty word. This bill wasn't perfect but I knew that we could craft a better bill in conference if we just got it through the House. I'm deeply disappointed the bill failed. Doing nothing only costs the government more money, increases prices at the grocery store, and puts the squeeze on middle class families. Our nation deserves better. I will continue to fight to give Rural America confidence and certainty."
