Culberson Statement on the 2018 Farm Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Culberson (TX-07), a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, released the following statement on the 2018 Farm Bill.
“The Farm Bill is important to America’s hardworking farmers and ranchers, and ensures that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families, continues helping those who need it most.
“One of the principal reasons I supported this Farm Bill is because it will help people become self-sufficient. With our soaring economy and unemployment at an 18-year low, there’s never been a better time to get folks off the sidelines and into meaningful work.
“This bill ensures that the basic needs of Americans – food, health care, and housing – are met. It will help adults that are fit to work – NOT seniors, NOT individuals with disabilities, and NOT children – regain a sense of pride that comes with the hard work and respect of having a job.
“I’m proud to support this bill, and I urge my Senate colleagues to do the same.”
