Congressman Lucas Town Hall Meeting

Ponca City Now - September 6, 2013 9:10 am

Congressman Frank Lucas was in town yesterday visiting with constituents.

He said the main topic at numerous town hall meetings is Syria.

“If anyone thinks we should be engaged militarily in Syria than you better stand up and you better say it really loud,” Lucas said. “You better be very persuasive because it will take a lot of persuading to convince me we should give President Obama the authority.”

Congressman Lucas also spoke about the Farm Bill, which is still a work in progress.

“ The senate has passed their version out of committee and across the floor, so they are waiting to go to conference with it,” Lucas sais. “And the house of representatives we attempted to pass a comprehensive farm bill because of the nature of the welfare reform previsions in it. We weren’t able to get that done. We came back with what I call a farm bill, farm bill only which is non food stamp everything else farm bill. We have passed that.”

Congressman Lucas also heard from his constituents during the meeting about various topics.
