House Agriculture Committee Farm Bill Coverage

On July 5, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Lucas (R-OK) and Ranking Member Peterson (D-MN) released their draft farm bill ahead of the House Agriculture Committee’s farm bill markup scheduled for next week beginning Wednesday, July 11. Here’s coverage from the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) this week:
NSAC Comments on House Agriculture Committee Farm Bill Draft
“NSAC is pleased that the farm bill process has started in the House and with some of the specific provisions in the bill, but we are overall very disappointed with the draft starting point,” said Ferd Hoefner, NSAC Policy Director. “This is an anti-reform bill — bad for family farmers, rural communities, and the environment. It will need to be reworked very substantially to gain the support of our coalition of farm and rural groups as the process moves forward.”
