Farm Bill Vote a Blow to America’s Farmers and Ranchers
WASHINGTON, May 18, 2018 – The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:
“We are already starting to hear from farmers across the nation, many of whom are perplexed and outraged at this morning’s vote. They are facing very real financial challenges. We call on all members of Congress not to use farmers and ranchers as pawns in a political game. The risk management tools of the farm bill are too important, particularly at a time of depressed farm prices. We urge the House to pass H.R. 2 as soon as possible.”
