Speaks on the House Floor; joins 50 Farm Groups at rally; Continues to lead bipartisan coalition

Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) is continuing his push for passage of the 2012 Farm Bill in the U.S. House. On Monday, Braley spoke on the House Floor to address the issue, highlighting the need for passage of a Farm Bill. Today, he joined 50 Agriculture Groups at a rally to pass the Farm Bill, and he continues to lead a bipartisan coalition that is calling for a vote before the September 30th deadline.

“Iowa farmers need stability from the farm bill to ensure the economic impact of the drought will not devastate them. Speaker Boehner is playing unprecedented games by denying and delaying this much needed bill. I am fighting tooth and nail to get the Farm Bill up for a vote and am doing everything possible to get this done for Iowa farmers.”
