US Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack Provides Ag Budget Overview in USDA Budget Briefing Tuesday US Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack met with reporters via teleconference about President Obama's final budget as a sitting President, and pointed to several priorities that he hopes that Congress will seriously consider as they work on agency appropriations for Fiscal Year 2017. Those priorities include an increase in Ag Research, an expansion of the Summer Feeding Program, fixing the Fire Budget and giving USDA the authority to expand their presence in Cuba. At the same time, the administration wants to reduce the level of premium subsidies for crop insurance.


USDA has provided details of the ag portion of the budget on their website- available here.
