NCC Appreciates House Moving Farm Law Closer To Reality
The National Cotton Council (NCC) commended the House of Representatives for their strong bi-partisan approval of The Agricultural Act of 2014.

NCC Chairman Jimmy Dodson reiterated appreciation for the bill's authorization of a new crop insurance product tailored to cotton that represents an important step to achieving a final resolution of the long-standing Brazil WTO case.

"We want to thank House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson for their perseverance in getting this fiscally-responsible, comprehensive five-year farm legislation to the next step," the South Texas cotton producer said. "Our hope is that the Senate will move swiftly in passing this important measure and that the President will sign it. That will provide our nation's farmers with a solid risk management mechanism so they can continue producing safe, abundant, and affordable food and fiber."

Dodson emphasized again that "a viable production agriculture sector is critical to our national security and our economy and this legislation is essential to production agriculture's stability."
