Press reports indicate any farm bill extension is a non-starter in the Senate
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today reiterated his call to keep the House in session until its work on many important issues, including a new, long-term farm bill, is completed. There have been recent press reports which indicate the Senate would not consider, let alone be able to pass a short farm bill extension. This situation necessitates the need for the House to remain in session and ready to work on a comprehensive farm bill.
“I don’t want to be accused of being the Grinch who wants to steal Christmas, but passing a farm bill is too important for the House to pack up and go home early for the Holidays. We must stay and complete all of the work that the American people are demanding get done and if that means staying through Christmas, I am ready and willing to do just that. There is simply too much to finish in the three remaining days that the House is scheduled to be in session,” said Loebsack.###
