Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry, was selected today to serve as a conferee on the congressional conference committee for the 2018 Farm Bill. The committee is tasked with reconciling the differences between the House and Senate versions of the Farm Bill.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to once again serve on the Farm Bill conference committee,” said Congressman Lucas. “The 2018 Farm Bill builds upon the success of the 2014 Farm Bill, and I am excited to play a role in producing a bill that protects the farm safety net and ensures our fellow citizens have access to safe and affordable food and fiber. I am also focused on maintaining critical conservation programs that will help preserve our natural resources and promote thoughtful landowner stewardship. As the 2014 Farm Bill deadline approaches, we are taking an important step toward delivering a comprehensive final product to the president’s desk.”
