Monday on Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer spoke with Tom and Laura about efforts made toward an agreement on the Farm Bill before Congress takes a break for the holiday.

Neugebauer talked about the 30 day extension that was recently passed in the House. The extension would allow more time for a decision on the Farm Bill, moving the deadline back to after the holiday. In the Senate, the extension may not be brought to the table or discussed at all, as a more permanent solution is being sought. Neugebauer said there might be a three-day conference after the holiday during which, "We would sit down and try to hash out the final pieces of this legislation that are different between the House and Senate version." He does not expect the process to be completed quickly.

Neugebauer also reiterated the negative aspects of the Affordable Care Act and discussed his decision to vote against the recently agreed upon budget.
