Crawford encourages Farm Bill Comments

Comments submitted by May 20th will be considered in writing the 2012 Farm Bill

Today, Congressman Rick Crawford is reminding his constituents they can have a voice in crafting new farm policy. Crawford, who serves on the House Agriculture Committee, is encouraging Arkansas farmers to submit comments and suggestions for federal agriculture policy online at http://agriculture.house.gov/farmbill by May 20th.

“Agriculture is the number one industry in Arkansas. As my colleagues and I on the House Agriculture Committee begin to write a new Farm Bill, we want to hear producers’ thoughts on current farm policy and ideas for new policy,” said Crawford. “The Farm Bill Field Hearing I hosted at Arkansas State University was a tremendous opportunity for Arkansas farmers to have a voice in the new Farm Bill, but we cannot stop there. By going to http://agriculture.house.gov/farmbill, farmers can submit their ideas for improving farm policy as new legislation is being crafted.”

On March 30, 2012 Crawford hosted a Field Hearing on the 2012 Farm Bill at Arkansas State University. The Arkansas Field Hearing was one of only four in the entire country and focused on Southern Agriculture. Since the hearing, Crawford has encouraged his constituents to submit comments for the new Farm Bill at http://agriculture.house.gov/farmbill by May 20th.

Congressman Rick Crawford serves on the Agriculture Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in the United States House of Representatives. He is the first graduate of Arkansas State University to serve in Congress. Crawford and his wife Stacy live in Jonesboro with their two young children.
