Congressman Yoho Calls Farm Bill Failure a "Disappointment"
Published June 22nd, 2013
NEWBERRY - North central Florida's farmers may be wondering "what's next" out of Congress after a sweeping new farm bill was blocked late in the week.
The bill was supposed to fund several food and agriculture programs, including subsidies for farmers.
But in the wake of the bill's defeat, one of its supporters and Florida's only member of the House Agriculture Committee, Congressman Ted Yoho, is holding both Democrats and Republicans responsible for what he says was failing to put the interests of Americans before their party ideology.
