Chairman Conaway video transcript:
I need 218 votes. I don't care if they are Republican votes or Democrat votes, I need 218 votes. When it goes to red and green on the [house] Floor, it doesn't say Republicans or Democrats. It just says I am for production agriculture. I am for these SNAP families out there who deserve a better way forward in their lives, they deserve an opportunity or break that cycle of poverty. I am for giving assurances and certainty to an ag community that has suffered a 50 percent drop in net farm income over the last 5 years, or I'm against all that.
