Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry, released the following statement upon House passage of the Agricultural and Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2).

“I am pleased my colleagues in the House have acted to pass the 2018 Farm Bill,” said Congressman Lucas. “This legislation underscores the importance of protecting the farm safety net for producers and ensuring our fellow citizens have access to a safe and affordable food supply. The 2018 Farm Bill builds upon the success of the 2014 Farm Bill and, in this environment of low commodity prices, gives producers greater economic certainty to plan for the future.”

“I’m proud of the work by my colleagues in the House Agriculture Committee in crafting a comprehensive bill. Now, it is crucial that the Senate passes a Farm Bill so that a final product can be developed in conference committee.”
