Chairman Frank Lucas Previews Farm Bill Plans at Lahoma Field Day

Fri, 10 May 2013 15:22:01 CDT

Chairman Frank Lucas Previews Farm Bill Plans at Lahoma Field Day The Chairman of the House Ag Committee, Oklahoma Congressman Frank Lucas, looked very relaxed as he spoke to a group of farmers gathered for the 2013 Lahoma Wheat Field Day at the OSU Wheat Research Facility just outside Lahoma, Oklahoma (west of Enid). Lucas, in the middle of his sprawling 32 county district, made references time and again about those "folks back east" as he referred to the efforts to bring together a 2013 five year Farm Bill.

Lucas spoke to the farmers about the expectations for the the mark up of farm policy this coming week in Washington- both in the Senate Ag Committee on Tuesday and then the House Ag Committee on Wednesday.

He expressed a lot of optimism that a new five year farm bill would be completed this year- especially with the hope of floor time as early as June- as promised by House leadership.

We have his full remarks made to the farm audience on Friday morning- five days in front of the mark up- and you can listen to them by clicking on the listen bar below.

A discussion draft and summary of the FARRM Act of 2013 is available online at: http://agriculture.house.gov/markup/consider-2013-farm-bill.
