Gulleson: Stalling on Farm Bill Unacceptable
Responds to House Leadership’s decision not to schedule vote on crucial ag legislation
 
RUTLAND, ND –
U.S. House Candidate
 
Pam Gulleson expressed frustration today with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s decision to leave the 2012 Farm Bill off a list of measures the House will consider this summer,making it clear that the legislation has little chance of coming up before the August recess.“This kind of stalling is absolutely unacceptable,” Gulleson said. “It shows a fundamental dysfunction in thecurrent House leadership that they’ve managed to waste two weeks on political bickering and symbolic votes buthaven’t bothered to take up the Farm Bill, which is so crucial to our nation’s agriculture producers. The state of North Dakota, and our country, deserve better.”If the Farm Bill is not taken up before August recess, the House will have only 13 days in September to pass it inorder to avoid the September 30
th
deadline.“If the House choses to wait until after that deadline, farmers and ranchers will be placed in a precarious positionas they plan for the coming year. The Farm Bill could also be subject to sequestration, which could mean hugecuts for essential programs like crop insurance,” Gulleson said.Gulleson’s opponent Kevin Cramer has flip-flopped on the bill, first calling the Senate version the stronger version,then claiming that he supported the House committee version instead, despite the fact that it more heavily favorsSouthern agriculture producers and does not provide for disaster aid in times like this summer’s devastatingdrought or last year’s floods. Cramer’s sudden turnaround could be due to pressure from the anti-Farm Bill Clubfor Growth, which has contributed over $100,000 to his campaign.
