House passes farm bill 251-166

The farm bill will head to the Senate after members of the House passed it with a vote of 251-166 Wednesday morning.

House Agricultural Committee Chairman Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., called it legislation to be proud of, fulfilling the expectations of the American people.

"I am pleased a majority of my House colleagues joined me in supporting a five-year comprehensive farm bill. I appreciated the efforts of everyone who helped get us here. This is legislation we can all be proud of because it fulfills the expectations the American people have of us. They expect us to work to together to find ways to reduce the cost of the federal government. The Agricultural Act contributes major savings to deficit reduction, significant reforms to policy, and yet still provides a safety net not only for the production of American food and fiber, but also to ensure our fellow citizens have enough food to eat. I am hopeful this legislation will enjoy the same success when the Senate considers it, and I encourage the president to sign it quickly into law," Lucas said in a statement shortly after the vote.
