Perrone’s statement reads as follows:
“We applaud the Senate Agriculture Committee for working across the aisle and coming together to pass a Farm Bill.
“The Farm Bill is good policy that creates good jobs and is counted on by hard-working families throughout the country. Using it for leverage or as a pawn in a partisan political game is dangerous and wrong.
“We urge the U.S. House of Representatives to follow the Senate’s lead and begin immediate work on a Farm Bill that can be passed with bipartisan support.”
