With the congressional recess coming up in August, Neugebauer said there may not be enough time to approve the new Farm Bill before the recess. However, he still intends to move forward with the bill as opposed to simply extending the old bill.

“We have to do something for our farmers and ranchers…If I don’t think we’re going to be able to bring a permanent farm bill up, then we don’t have many options but to extend [the old bill]. The problem with that is that we don’t get any of the reforms that I think the people want and we should be doing.

Neugebauer also talked about the extension of the Bush tax cuts. Neugebauer would like to see the old tax code abolished completely, saying that tax cuts should have never been temporary. He added that if people really want tax cuts to help the economy grow, then the cuts should be permanent and fair. Neugebauer also talked about border security, Chick-Fil-A, and what to do about federal employees who don’t pay their taxes.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer Mondays at 7:35 during Lubbock’s First News on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
