Wheat Growers Applaud Senate Passage of 2013 Farm Bill

Mon, 10 Jun 2013 18:11:55 CDT

Wheat Growers Applaud Senate Passage of 2013 Farm Bill A statement from National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) President Bing Von Bergen, a wheat farmer from Moccasin, Mont.:


"NAWG and the wheat growers we represent in every region of the country applaud the Senate for passing its version of the farm bill Monday on a 66 to 27 vote.


"The Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 is vital policy that will help provide certainty to our farmers and support more than 16 million U.S. jobs. Importantly, the bill passed today cuts $24 billion over existing spending.


"NAWG was encouraged to see Senate Democrats and Republicans working together to pass this important bill. It has become a rare day when leaders of the two parties come together on truly bipartisan legislation. We are grateful Chairwoman Stabenow and Ranking Member Cochran were so committed to bringing their caucuses together to ensure our growers have strong farm policy over the next five years.


"We are now looking toward the House as leaders there begin debate on their version of the farm bill in the coming weeks. We are hopeful progress will continue and a new farm and food law can be signed by Sept. 30."
