Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has issued the following statement regarding the failure of the U.S. House to approve the 2013 Farm Bill:

“I am disappointed that the 2013 Farm Bill, which would have created certainty for both consumers and our farmers, failed to pass the U.S. House of Representatives. I join my colleagues on the House Agriculture Committee in my commitment to going back to the drawing board and working to craft a Farm Bill that will cut waste, eliminate duplication, and expose fraud while ensuring the American people an abundant, safe, and affordable food supply.”

Congresswoman Hartzler serves on the House Agriculture, Budget, and Armed Services Committees.
