NSP Praises House Passage of the Farm Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – National Sorghum Producers commends the House of Representatives for coming together and finally passing the Agriculture Act of 2014, H.R. 2642, by a vote of 251-166.

“The hard work and tenacity demonstrated by agriculture committee leadership is to be commended,” said J.B. Stewart, NSP chairman and sorghum farmer from Keyes, Okla. “It’s been a long road but the process thorough, and NSP applauds Chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) and their staffs for successfully bringing a good farm bill across the House floor.”

The bill achieves substantial budget savings but maintains balanced and solid protection for America’s farmers and ranchers. NSP looks forward to the Senate vote and hopes to see it through to fruition.


NSP represents U.S. sorghum producers and serves as the voice of the sorghum industry coast to coast through legislative representation, regulatory representation and education. To learn more about NSP, visit www.sorghumgrowers.com.
