Ag Appropriations Process Should Not Undermine Farm Bill, Co-ops Say

Ag Appropriations Process Should Not Undermine Farm Bill, Co-ops Say


The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) joined with over 30 other farm and agriculture groups in urging House members to reject any amendment to the FY 2015 agriculture appropriations bill that would weaken the farm bill enacted earlier this year.


"There are a great many issues outside of the Farm Bill that are creating anxiety in rural America, crossing the gamut from trade, tax, regulatory issues and access to a stable workforce to market and weather conditions," the groups say in the letter. "Allowing farmers and ranchers an opportunity to adjust to the new Farm Bill without further changes to this very recently enacted measure will help reduce the level of anxiety in farm country and pay economic dividends."


In reaction to the letter, NCFC President Chuck Conner said, "The 2014 farm bill was the product of a long, arduous process that spanned three years and two congresses. The final bill enacted what are, in many cases, substantial changes to current farm safety net programs. To change these provisions before they are fully implemented robs America's farmers and ranchers of the certainty they need as they bring a challenging planting season to a close."
