Speaker Boehner on Enactment of 2014 Farm Bill

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today applauded enactment of the 2014 Farm Bill, which President Barack Obama signed into law this afternoon:

“Americans expect leaders in Washington, DC to work together to solve problems and reform cumbersome, outdated laws.  The 2014 Farm Bill will streamline agricultural programs and ensure that families in need get the help they deserve, all while saving taxpayers billions and without earmarks.  While this is a step in the right direction, more reform is necessary.  I am grateful for the leadership of Chairman Frank Lucas and his colleagues for their persistence in working to finalize this important measure.”
