Ag Committee Moves Forward with Farm Bill Process and Announces DC Hearing Schedule

Ag Committee Moves Forward with Farm Bill Process and Announces DC Hearing Schedule
House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas announced another series of hearings on the 2012 Farm Bill to begin next week in Washington, D.C. The six Subcommittees will hold the hearings throughout April and May to hear from national agricultural stakeholders advocating for policy priorities. It is the next step in the Farm Bill development.

Last June, Chairman Lucas began the effort when the Agriculture Committee held 11 audit hearings on agriculture programs to look for ways to improve programs for farmers, increase efficiency, and reduce spending. Chairman Lucas then took Committee Members to the countryside to hear directly from producers in the field. The hearings slated for Washington will round out the information gathering in advance of writing legislation.

"It's important to consider a variety of perspectives when writing comprehensive legislation. We are continuing our efforts to gather as much information as possible so we can write sound and effective farm policy that works for all of agriculture. We have reviewed spending trends and have heard from our producers on the ground. Now it's time for national agricultural leaders and stakeholders to present their views on farm policy," Lucas said.

The full schedule is below:

Subcommittee on Rural Development, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture; Re: Rural Development Programs
