Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, also known as the Farm Bill. Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) released the following statement in support of this critical legislation:

“Having grown up raising hogs and cattle, I understand how hard farmers work day in and day out to put food on our tables and on the shelves of our grocery stores,” said Congressman Luetkemeyer. “Under the leadership of Chairman Conaway, the Farm Bill prioritizes rural America and provides our farmers with the certainty they need. This bill protects crop insurance, requires the USDA to establish forward-looking broadband standards, and prioritizes development initiatives to promote job creation and economic growth in rural areas. I voted in support of this bill to ensure stability for our Missouri farmers and strengthen our rural communities, and I urge my colleagues in the Senate to pass this critical legislation.”
