Magnitude of farm bill changes

Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, says he will “do everything I can” to get a farm bill done by late September. “But the magnitude of changes,” he says, “dramatically alters the situation.”

Lucas, keynote speaker at last week’s Southern Peanut Growers’ Conference in Panama City Beach, Fla., said the House needs to act soon to get the bill passed on the floor and into conference with the Senate.
