Washington, D.C. – After 65 days, and significant pressure from Rep. Braley, Speaker Boehner finally allowed the House Farm Bill to be reported from Committee.  Immediately, Rep. Braley formally introduced his bipartisan discharge petition.

“Today, we took a tremendous step forward toward forcing a vote on the Farm Bill.  After 65 days of dithering and distraction, Speaker Boehner has finally allowed the bill to be released from Committee.  Today, I’ve filed my bipartisan discharge petition to force this bill to the Floor. I urge my colleagues to sign the petition immediately.


“Now that we, a group of Democrats and Republicans, have filed this discharge petition, and it’s available for signatures, we’ll see who really supports the Farm Bill Now.”
