Independent Community Bankers of America Applauds the US House for Passing the 2018 Farm Bill

Wed, 12 Dec 2018 16:36:50 CST

Independent Community Bankers of America Applauds the US House for Passing the 2018 Farm Bill Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey issued the following statement on the House of Representatives’ passage of the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2).



“ICBA applauds today’s bipartisan House vote to pass a new farm bill and send the bill to President Trump to be signed into law.



“The bipartisan bill includes important commodity price protections that will provide producers and community banks with greater business-planning certainty over the next five years. This is essential during an era of low commodity prices, sharply lower net farm income, and foreign trade uncertainties.



“The farm bill also maintains a strong crop insurance program, increases USDA guaranteed farm loan limits to $1.75 million, and provides for the possible increase in guaranteed USDA rural development loans—all of which are ICBA and community bank priorities.



“ICBA and the nation’s community bankers appreciate the bipartisan congressional action on the farm bill and urge President Trump to quickly sign it into law.”
