Washington, D.C. – House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) made the following statement concerning legislation released yesterday evening to keep the government open and requiring that USDA’s CCC be replenished, just as Republicans and a handful of Democrats demanded:

“It’s ironic that as news was released about the budget deal some are implying that House Democratic leadership is somehow to be thanked, apparently for failing to follow through on the threat to do serious harm to rural America. That’s akin to Texans thanking Santa Anna for making Texas a Republic. The good news is the Democrats failed in their effort to use our hard-working farm and ranch families as pawns in their obsessive vendetta against the president."
