Farm groups call for bill consideration

The American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Farmers Union and 75 other farm and agriculture groups sent House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., and ranking member Collin Peterson, D-Minn., a letter today urging committee members to pass a bill at the committee's markup this week and move it to the House floor.

The groups, which have differing positions on sections of the bill, did not say anything about its content.
