Womack Statement on the FARRM Act

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement today after the House rejected the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act (FARRM; H.R. 1947):

"Today's vote was about protecting Arkansas farmers and making meaningful reforms to farm and food programs. The FARRM Act would have done that. The bill would have slashed spending by more than $40 billion and instituted much needed reforms to our nutrition programs. The changes to the food stamp program -- alone -- would have saved taxpayers more than $20 billion.

"I remain committed to reducing spending, but our government is divided and our opportunities are limited. It's a shame that we squandered this one."
