Center For Rural Affairs Likes Senate’s Farm Bill

The approval of the farm bill in the Senate this week is a step in the right direction. Center for Rural Affairs Assistant Director of Policy Traci Bruckner says the legislation contains needed help for those just starting to farm and for ag development and small rural businesses.

Bruckner says her group is also pleased the Senate included Senator Grassley’s farm payment limit plan as well as Senator Thune’s Sod saver provision. She says one negative to the Senate Farm Bill is that it didn’t limit crop insurance payment levels.

She hopes House members will get their farm bill to the floor yet this month and get a final measure passed before the August recess.
