National Milk Group Working For Farm Bill With Dairy Security Act

National Milk Group Working For Farm Bill With Dairy Security Act

One of the main priorities of the National Milk Producers Federation is urging Congress to get both a farm bill and immigration reform legislation passed. Both of those will be up when legislators return this week from the Holiday recess. Federation’s Chris Galen says although they were inititally concerned that Representative’s Goodlatte’s margin protection program was approved over the Dairy Security Act, it actually was part of the reason the House farm bill failed before the recess.

Galen says their dairy provision did make it through the Senate Farm Bill and now the focus will be to try and get it approved when the House reconsiders farm legislation.

Galen says another challenge will be to get the House to pass immigration legislation and follow the Senate’s lead for comprehensive reform.
