Boehner Statement on Farm Bill Passage |

WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after the House passed its version of the Farm Bill:

“Our farm and food stamp programs need reform.  The status quo is unacceptable, which is why I voted against most of the farm bills of the past two decades, and supported this one.  I’m pleased the House took a positive first step forward in providing some much-needed reforms to our farm programs today.  Reforming our food stamp programs is also essential.  Chairman Lucas should be commended for his work on this bill, and I look forward to continuing to work with him and our members as we move this process forward.”
