Jun 21, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin), released the following statement after the House voted to pass H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act:

“This afternoon, I voted ‘yes’ on behalf of Texas farmers and ranchers who are the foundation of our agricultural system in the United States, and around the world. Though I recognize the importance of this legislation for our country, this is a missed opportunity. The well-being of our farmers should not be hitched to a welfare program that has grown unchecked for far too long. The entitlement reforms authorized in this bill are a good start, but we must continue to address cost-laden programs that discourage putting Americans back to work.”
