"The American Farm Bureau Federation commends the conferees for moving forward in a bipartisan fashion to complete work on H.R. 2642, the 2014 Farm Bill.

"Overall, Farm Bureau places a high priority on the decisions to:

"Provide considerable savings in the bill to reduce the federal government budget deficit;

"Protect and strengthen the federal crop insurance program and not reduce its funding;

"Develop a commodity title that provides producers safety net options that encourage them to follow market signals rather than basing planting decisions on anticipation of government payments; and
