House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas on Ag Approps Outcome and More

Wed, 22 Jun 2011 11:26:46 CDT

House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas on Ag Approps Outcome and More The Chairman of the House Ag Committee, Oklahoma Third District Congressman Frank Lucas, talked with Director of Farm Programming Ron Hays about a variety of ag issues on Wednesday morning- including a discussion of the three day debate on the FY2012 Ag Appropriations bill. Lucas says that except for the amendment offered by Arizona COngressman Jeff Flake that prohibits USDA from paying the $147 million to the Brazilian Cotton Institute, the attempts to change farm policy on the floor was turned back.


Lucas also talked about the instructions to USDA to not to go forward in finalizing the GIPSA Rule after October first, about the Senate Ag Committee passing HR 872, the 2008 Farm Law Audit Sessions that were supposed to start today, deficit reduction and the efforts by Vice President Joe Biden to broker a deal and the hangup on the Free Trade Deals.


On the Audit sessions, he indicated that USDA had requested more time to pull together specific data that the Chairman had asked them to bring to the Committee- and that he had granted them some extra time to do- adding the review of Conservation programs will be rescheduled in the not too distant future.


Lucas believes that the Deficit Reduction efforts between the White House and Congressional Leadership has more incentive than ever before to come together on a way to get a handle on the Federal Government deficit.
