NFU Pleased and Happy With Results of Farm Bill Action in US Senate

Tue, 11 Jun 2013 04:50:36 CDT

NFU Pleased and Happy With Results of Farm Bill Action in US Senate National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture, Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 by a vote of 66-27:


"I am pleased that the Senate was able to come together in a bipartisan manner to pass the 2013 Farm Bill, which is a vital piece of legislation for family farmers and ranchers across the country. I appreciate the hard work of the leadership of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, as well as the hard work of all Senators.


"We are happy to see language included that will provide a safety net for family farmers and ranchers, as well as a robust crop insurance program, mandatory energy funding, streamlined conservation programs, additional protections for livestock producers and incentives for locally owned and organic production.


"NFU urges the U.S. House of Representatives to follow suit with expeditious floor consideration and passage of its version of the legislation. NFU looks forward to working with both chambers of Congress through a conference committee to complete a comprehensive, five-year farm bill before current legislation expires on Sept. 30."
