Lawmakers Show Support for Farmers

Wed, 23 Sep 2020 10:12:38 CDT

Lawmakers Show Support for Farmers The decision by House lawmakers to include a reimbursement of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) in the continuing resolution demonstrates their support for America's farmers. The measure passed and will now go to the Senate. Funds from the CCC support farm programs ranging from conservation to risk management. The CCC was dangerously close to running out of funds, which would have effectively shut down the farm safety net.

The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall:

"We applaud Chairman Peterson and Ranking Member Conaway for their leadership, and House lawmakers for putting aside their differences to address the hardships being felt by America's farmers and ranchers. For years, funding the CCC has been a bipartisan commitment. While we were disappointed it recently became a political flashpoint, we are pleased lawmakers on both sides of the aisle recognize that these funds help to sustain conservation programs and stock America's pantry. I would be remiss if I did not also thank the Farm Bureau members across the country who let their elected leaders know how important the farm safety net is to the future of U.S. agriculture. We are grateful farmers' voices were heard."
