AG SEC'Y ISSUES COMMENT ON HOUSE'S DEFEAT OF FARM BILL
Source: USDA news release

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack made the following statement today on the failure of the House version of a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill:

"The failure by the House leadership, for the second year in a row, to reach consensus on a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill is a tremendous disappointment for all Americans.

"Twice now, the U.S. Senate has done its job and passed balanced, comprehensive legislation with overwhelming bipartisan support.

"Unfortunately, the House version of this bill would have unfairly denied food assistance for millions of struggling families and their children, while failing to achieve needed reforms or critical investments to continue economic growth in rural America.

"As a result, the House was unable to achieve bipartisan consensus."
