Revised FARRM Act Passes House of Representatives

National Sorghum Producers Chairman Terry Swanson released the following statement in response to the House of Representatives’ passage of the split version of the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013:

“While the road leading to this point in the farm bill process is unconventional, National Sorghum Producers supports the revised bill that was before Congress today and thanks the Members of the House of Representatives for passing the bill. We stand behind the leadership of Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas and his decision to move forward in this way as a means to getting a bill to conference committee that will ultimately result in a comprehensive, five-year farm bill.”
