 Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “House Republican leadership should promise fiscal conservatives that they will not use a short-term extension as a vehicle to get to conference on a massive new farm bill.”

Washington, DC – The Club for Growth issued the following statement today regarding the one-year extension of the current farm bill currently under consideration by the House of Representatives:

“House Republican leadership should promise fiscal conservatives that they will not use a short-term extension as a vehicle to get to conference on a massive new farm bill,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Last month, leadership pulled a similar trick with the highway bill. Republicans should be fighting to cut spending and limit government, not compromising with Democrats to spend billions of dollars on farm subsidies and food stamps.”
