Rep. Crawford Reacts to Passage of the Farm Bill Conference Report

Washington, DC – Today, the House of Representatives passed the Conference report to H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 by a record high vote of 369-47. 

Following passage of the legislation Crawford released the following statement:

“Given the importance of agriculture to Arkansas’ economy, I’m pleased to see the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. This farm bill provides important updates to our food security system, delivers a robust crop insurance system, removes burdensome SAM/DUNs requirements for farm programs, invests in the vitality of our rural communities, and makes progress in our efforts to allow agriculture commodities to be exported to Cuba. Food security is a matter of national security, and a nation that cannot feed itself is a nation in trouble. This Farm bill ensures American farmers and ranchers will continue to produce a safe, affordable food and fiber supply for all Americans.”

Rep. Rick Crawford is a member of the House Committee on Agriculture as well as the Chairman of Subcommittee General Farm Commodities and Risk Management. He also served as a Conferee for the 2018 Farm Bill.
