Oklahoma Wheat Farmer Jimmie Musick Says US Wheat Growers Glad to See Movement on 2018 Farm Bill by House Ag Committee Chair Mike Conaway

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 19:15:24 CDT

Oklahoma Wheat Farmer Jimmie Musick Says US Wheat Growers Glad to See Movement on 2018 Farm Bill by House Ag Committee Chair Mike Conaway Today, the House Committee on Agriculture released its language for its version of the 2018 Farm Bill. In response, NAWG President Jimmie Musick made the following statement:


We are glad to see that the House is taking a first step in the 2018 Farm Bill reauthorization process by releasing its draft bill. NAWG is currently reviewing the text and will continue to work with Members of the Committee and their staff to ensure our priorities are addressed in the bill.


NAWG continues to advocate for a strong crop safety net program which means no cuts to the crop insurance program and maintaining a producer choice between revenue-based (Agriculture Risk Coverage) and price-based (Price Loss Coverage) programs, as well as improvements to both. Further, NAWG continues to advocate for prioritizing working lands conservation programs in the Conservation Title, reauthorization and increased funding for MAP and FMD, as well as a strong research title.


We urge Congress to move forward in a bipartisan manner in order to enable a bill to pass both chambers.
