Ranking Member David Scott Statement on Boozman's Farm Bill Framework

Today, House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member David Scott released the following statement after Ranking Member John Boozman published a farm bill summary that mimics the House Republicans' partisan farm bill.

“By copying the approach taken by House Agriculture Republicans, the Senate Agriculture Republican minority has chosen to ignore Democratic warnings by putting forth policies, particularly on nutrition, that Democrats cannot and will not accept. The worst-kept secret in the agriculture community is that a farm bill with the Republican proposal on the Thrifty Food Plan will never become law. Who will acknowledge this reality first, House or Senate Republicans? Or will they continue to place their ideological obsession with making massive cuts to SNAP over the real need of our farmers to enact a farm bill this year?”
