TFB statement on House Ag Committee farm bill text

TFB statement on House Ag Committee farm bill text

The following statement may be attributed to Texas Farm Bureau President Russell Boening regarding today’s release of "The Farm, Food, and National Security Act of 2024” by U.S. House Agriculture Committee Chairman G.T. Thompson.

“Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) commends Chairman G.T. Thompson and his superb team at the U.S. House Agriculture Committee for producing a farm bill that meets the needs of not only farm and ranch families, but also consumers and other important stakeholders. Chairman Thompson visited many agricultural operations across Texas and held a listening session in Waco to gain knowledge of the severe challenges our farmers and ranchers are facing.

“It is evident the chairman and his staff have listened to our concerns, in addition to many others, and worked tirelessly to produce a farm bill proposal to directly address these challenges. The provisions included in this proposal will also strengthen national food security, which is critical to our country’s future. TFB looks forward to the committee mark-up and encourages U.S. House Agriculture Committee members to support this bill and pass it out of committee. Texas farmers and ranchers desperately need a new farm bill to help them continue feeding and clothing consumers worldwide."
