Illinois Corn Growers Association President Paul Taylor, a family farmer from Esmond, IL, issued the following statement today after hearing the U.S. House failed to pass the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act (2013 farm bill) by a vote of 234-195.
“It’s extremely disappointing, bordering on shocking, to be nine months into a farm bill extension and then see a bill that would have offered real and meaningful reform fail to pass.
We hope that the House of Representatives can start this process again and revise the bill to a point where it can ultimately be passed as it is important to farmers, rural America and the American economy.”
