FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ICBA Statement on House Farm Bill Vote

Washington, D.C. (July 11, 2013)—The Independent Community Bankers of America(r) (ICBA) today released this statement following the House of Representatives' vote on the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013 (H.R. 2642).

“ICBA appreciates that the House passed a farm bill, which will allow the legislation to move to conference with the Senate version (S. 954), though several procedural questions have now been raised. Congress can and should come together to pass a comprehensive, bipartisan farm bill as this process moves forward.

“ICBA continues to urge the final passage of a new farm bill this year. A multi-year farm bill will help community banks provide stability and a financially viable economy for farmers, ranchers, and American citizens.”
