National Corn Growers Urge Swift Passage of Farm Bill Conference Report

Tue, 28 Jan 2014 05:13:02 CST

National Corn Growers Urge Swift Passage of Farm Bill Conference Report The following is a statement from National Corn Growers President Martin Barbre on the Agricultural Act of 2014, released by the House-Senate conference committee.


"We appreciate the hard work of the committee, especially Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Thad Cochran and Reps. Frank Lucas and Collin Peterson, for crafting a balanced compromise that ensures market-oriented reforms and effective risk management tools.   Their work, and that of many of their colleagues, has resulted in policies and reforms that we believe will effectively meet the diverse needs of consumers and farmers around the country.


"We're especially pleased the legislation provides an adequate and flexible farm safety net as well as strong federal crop insurance program. The new bill also includes an option for farmers to participate in a modified Agriculture Risk Coverage program.   


"We urge swift passage by both houses of Congress and look forward to seeing this new bill become law as soon as possible."
