Mr. LUCAS. Madam Speaker, I yield myself the balance of my time.
I think, as we've heard here today, this piece of legislation is an effort, in a very bipartisan way, to address some of the issues in Dodd-Frank that need to be fixed. If you care about production agriculture, if you care about Main Street business, if you care about the people who work in the factories that produce the products and do the things that make this great economy move forward, then you'll support H.R. 3336.
It won't affect the five biggest financial institutions that do 96 percent of this kind of business, but it will help the people who really toil and struggle every day to make a living. It will help the small communities where those good folks live. It's a positive effort to address issues that have come to light in the course of the Ag Committee's exhaustive hearings.
I simply thank my colleague, Congresswoman Hartzler, for working diligently on this bill. I thank the ranking member and my colleagues.
Let's vote for H.R. 3336. Let's try and help the folks back home.
With that, Madam Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.
