WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today applauded House passage of H.R. 2642, the Agricultural Act of 2014:

“All Americans stand to benefit in some way from this farm bill, which maintains critical assistance for families in need and improves programs for producers while cutting the cost of government.  More reform is needed, but this is an improvement over current law, and there are no earmarks.  It is also the result of the kind of vigorous debate and bipartisan collaboration that the House owes the people it serves, and I am grateful to Chairman Frank Lucas for his steadfast leadership throughout the process.   I hope the Senate acts in short order so these reforms can be implemented for the good of all Americans.”
