Concerning the new farm bill, Neugebauer said they would have less money to work with after$23 billion in agriculture cuts. But a smaller amount would not necessarily translate to a less effective farm bill.

“It’s not so much the numbers, it’s the policy we end up with. Sometimes we measureĀ  how successful something is by how much money we got for it. I measure success as to what kind of policy we end up with.”

Neugebauer said that one of the major policies he would like to see changed on the new farm bill is the crop insurance program.

Neugebauer also discussed the future of the NASA space program, saying that the organization needs to lay out specific goals it would like to accomplish. He also discussed the Secret Service scandal in Colombia, saying that aside from the agents involved, he would not point fingers at any higher-ranking official until more information comes out, and that the whole scandal was an embarrassment to the Secret Service.

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