Conaway Statement on Farm Bill Conference Committee

Washington, D.C. – House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) today made the following remarks after the 2018 Farm Bill Conference Committee concluded its first public meeting:

"Today my colleagues in the House and Senate highlighted the urgency in farm and ranch country and just how desperate times are as net farm income is slated to fall again this year. While I’m pleased with progress on the farm bill – we must pick up the pace. This will all come together quickly if all four principals are willing to make meaningful compromises. I have made it very clear that I am willing to do so. We still have a lot of work to do, but I believe we can get this done on time.”
