Passing the Agricultural Act of 2014
Every few years a farm bill must be passed to ensure the state of American agriculture. Farmers like Danny Davis of Oklahoma rely on the provisions granted in the legislation to maintain their farms, and Americans rely on farmers like Davis for everyday needs like food and clothing. However, with Congress more divided than ever, this task is threatened. Rep. Frank Lucas, Agricultural Committee Chairman, put his all into creating a bipartisan solution to passing the 2014 Agricultural Act.
