House Ag Leader Peterson Wants Farm-Bill Vote Next Week

November 8, 2012
 
 

House Ag Committee’s ranking member is “opposed to an extension of any kind for any time.”

WASHINGTON – U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson (D-Minn.) today urged House Republican leaders to bring the Agriculture Committee’s bipartisan five-year farm bill to the floor for a vote next week.

“The election is over so it’s time to get to work,” Peterson said in a statement released this morning. “I’m optimistic that, if given the chance, we have the votes to pass a five-year farm bill. There is no good reason not to vote on the bill when we return next week, before Thanksgiving. This will give us the time we need to work out our differences with the Senate and get a new five-year farm bill signed into law by the end of the year.

“I remain opposed to an extension of any kind for any time,” he added.
