NCBA Urges House and Senate to Pass the 2013 Farm Bill
WASHINGTON – Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3102, the House nutrition title as part of the 2013 Farm Bill. Passage of the 2013 Farm Bill remains the National Cattlemen's Beef Association's (NCBA) top priority for Congress to finalize.
“We are pleased that the House is one step closer towards passage of the farm bill and we encourage the House to appoint conferees to work out the differences between the House and Senate bills.” said Scott George, NCBA president and Cody Wyo., cattle and dairy producer. “Passage of the farm bill is the top priority as set by our membership and we will continue to work with Congress to pass a farm bill that meets the needs of cattle producers and guarantees certainty for rural America.”
The current extension of the 2008 Farm Bill is set to expire Sept. 30, reverting farm policy back to permanent law.
