NSP Commends Farm Bill Conference and Urges Quick AdoptionTue, 28 Jan 2014 11:52:05 CST
The National Sorghum Producers group praised the farm bill conference committee for finalizing a conference report that promises to provide certainty for farmers across the nation. The group also urged Congress to quickly adopt the legislation.
“NSP strongly supports the Agricultural Act of 2014,” said J.B. Stewart, NSP chairman. “This legislation meets NSP’s goals in providing farmers with a number of risk management tools, strengthening and protecting crop insurance, and including strong conservation and energy titles. Alongside the market-oriented reforms found in the bill, the legislation saves taxpayers $24 billion.”
NSP particularly commended Chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and their staffs for their work on the bill.
