Sep 28, 2013
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Kevin Cramer released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a rule during a weekend session rejoining the agriculture and food stamp bills passed by the chamber.

“As I have said all along, separating the agriculture and food stamp portions of the farm bill was the best strategy to pass both pieces of legislation through the House. With this accomplished, today we linked them together again to accelerate the conference committee process. This morning I spoke with House Leadership and urged them to name conferees in the coming days, not weeks, so we can begin negotiations with the Senate.”

On Thursday evening, Cramer presided over the floor of the House when the rule was introduced.
