Rep. Miller Statement on Farm Bill

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today released the following statement on the House version of the Farm Bill, H.R. 1947, the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013:

"I am disappointed that this bill went down to defeat in a bipartisan way -- many Republicans did not think $40 billion of cuts and reforms were enough; and nearly every Democrat would not vote for any bill that contained sensible cuts and reforms to our nation's generous food stamp program. America needs a farm bill; we cannot walk away from our agricultural heritage. Although the path forward is as clear as mud, I am committed to working together to achieve a balanced approach towards securing our food supply and making positive improvements to our agricultural industry in a fiscally responsible way. I think separating the agricultural portion of the bill from nutrition programs should be among the considered options."
