Rep. Stutzman statement on the passage of the farm bill

Posted:

U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed the first, farm-only Farm Bill in more than forty years:

 "Transparent government won an important victory today. Conservatives seized an opportunity to split the Farm Bill, a landmark reform that breaks the unholy alliance between food stamps and agriculture policy. For the first time since the 1970's taxpayers will have an honest look at how Washington spends their money on agriculture and food stamp policy.
 
"As a fourth-generation farmer, I am proud of my work to pass the first true, farm-only farm bill in more than four decades. This is just the first of many reforms and I look forward to working with my colleagues to continue reducing the size of a government that has driven taxpayers nearly $17 trillion in debt."
