WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement upon casting a vote in support of the final 2018 Farm Bill:

"America's agriculture and farming communities are vital to the fabric of our great nation, and are an enduring legacy of the Lone Star State. This bill includes important safeguards, including crop insurance, for our farmers and ranchers who feed and supply our country.

"We achieved some long-needed reforms in this year's Farm Bill, and took a stride toward more. For example, I am pleased the bill takes steps to restore programs for cotton producers, by reducing the impact of amendments designed to benefit certain regions and commodities at the expense of others.

"While this bill falls short of all I wanted to see accomplished, particularly with respect to work requirements for SNAP recipients, I look forward to working with the administration on potential regulations that would strengthen work requirements and prevent states from abusing the waiver process. But by passing this legislation, we will have provided certainty and stability to farmers and ranchers all across the state of Texas."
