Dec 12, 2013
Press Release
Washington, D.C. –Congressman Joaquin Castro [TX-20] released the following statement in support for the Farm Bill extension, which passed with unanimous support in the U.S. House of Representatives:
 
“This bill extends current agriculture-related law for another month in order to prevent the possibility that the law’s expiration could adversely affect commodity prices, like dairy. It also allows, Congress to flesh out a long-term Farm Bill. I am hopeful that my House and Senate colleagues who are currently debating the Farm Bill in conference will find common ground so that we may support our farmers and needy families who depend on these programs.”
