Neugebauer gave an update on the current Farm Bill. The Senate is now debating their version of the bill, while the House is working on their version. Neugebauer said that both the farm subsidies and the food stamps program will be taking cuts in the new bill, but the subsidies seem to be taking a disproportionately larger cut. Neugebauer said he will be working to keep the Farm Bill cuts as balanced as possible.

“What we’re trying to do is put together a policy that’s fiscally responsible, and also make sure that it provides the appropriate safety net for Amercian agriculture.”

Neugebauer also talked about the upcoming presidential elections in Mexico, and the possibility of Mexico removing their military from the drug wars. Neugebauer said the drug cartels are practically running Mexico, so there is strong possibility that the U.S. will step up their efforts in protecting our borders. However, he doesn’t anticipate the U.S. sending troops into Mexico unless it’s under “extraordinary circumstances.”

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