Crawford Looks Forward to First Farm Bill Conference Committee Meeting

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-1), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Rural Development, and Credit and a conferee to the 2013 Farm Bill, will attend the conference committee’s first meeting tomorrow afternoon in the Longworth House Office Building.

“As this conference committee begins the hard work of settling the differences between the House and Senate Farm Bills, it is critical to keep in mind the input we’ve received from our rural constituents. The House Agriculture Committee made this possible by holding hearings in nearly every region of the country, including my District, allowing producers to contribute by having their voices heard. This extensive outreach translated into a Farm Bill which fairly addresses the challenges producers face in the most diverse agriculture economy in the world.

“The final product must be a bipartisan bill that saves taxpayers’ money and reforms outdated government programs. If we strike the right balance, the Farm Bill will be foundational to the success of rural communities, and American agriculture will continue to be the envy of the world.”

Who: Congressman Rick Crawford, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, House and Senate Farm Bill conferees
What: 2013 Farm Bill Conference Committee Meeting
When: Wednesday, October 30 at 1:00 p.m. ET
Where: House Ways & Means Committee Room, 1100 Longworth House Office Building, Washington, DC
