Statement from Congressman Chris Collins on the Defeat of the House Farm Bill
Jun 20, 2013
“Today’s unfortunate defeat of the House Farm Bill speaks to the dysfunction in Washington that continues to stand in the way of solving real problems for real Americans.
Agriculture is a critical industry in New York’s 27th Congressional District, impacting our local residents far beyond those directly doing the hard work of farming. Our farmers and growers deserve a Congress that can come together and pass a long-term Farm Bill. It is essential to help our agricultural industry plan and prepare.
As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, I remain committed to the work ahead to see a Farm Bill become law.”
