Lucas still uncertain on farm bill fate

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., said Thursday that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has told him the farm bill is part of the year-end “big picture” for Republicans, but exactly how it will be handled is still unclear, Politico has reported.

“He assured me that was on their agenda and gave me the impression that it was one of the issues that will be addressed in the big picture sense … I assume he means sequestration and taxes,” Lucas told Politico.
