Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement after the House voted on the FY 2012 Agriculture Appropriations bill:

"Since the start of this Congress, we've seen a sustained attack on Iowa farmers and our state's economy. This bill is just the latest to threaten the thousands of jobs that depend on agriculture and the ethanol industry. I voted against previous bills that threatened Iowa jobs and I voted against this bill today because I will always stand up for Iowa farmers, jobs and our middle class families."
