American Farm Bureau Praises Spending and Tax Bill Passed by Congress- Pledges to Redouble Efforts on Items Left Out- GMO Labeling and WOTUS

American Farm Bureau Praises Spending and Tax Bill Passed by Congress- Pledges to Redouble Efforts on Items Left Out- GMO Labeling and WOTUS Bob Stallman, the President of the nation's largest general farm organization, offered the following comment on Friday on behalf of the American Farm Bureau after the Congress approved the Omnibus spending package that was bundled together withe tax bill in the US Senate before approval.



“America’s farm and ranch families will benefit greatly from the strong, bipartisan congressional passage of important tax relief, funding and policy provisions. The legislation provides needed changes to tax policy, funding for programs important to farmers, ranchers and rural communities, and actions related to country-of-origin labeling to prevent retaliation against U.S. agricultural products. We look forward to the president’s approval of this legislation.
 

“While we know there were tough decisions made to secure enough votes for this very important package, we will continue pushing for action on those items that Congress did not include. We need national policy on GMO labeling that is based on science and does not allow a patchwork of confusion that would be created by state and local laws. We will also continue to work with Congress to send the Environmental Protection Agency’s onerous Waters of the U.S. rule back to the drawing board. Those two items are big pieces of unfinished business that America’s farmers and ranchers need as they work to produce food and fiber for our nation.”
