Nebraska Farmers Union Approves Policy On Medicaid,COOL, And Farm Bill

Nebraska Farmers Union members passed special orders of business at their recent convention in Grand Island. President John Hansen says the order that drew the most passion from his group’s members was support for Country of Origin Labeling. He says members are upset that farm bill conferees are even considering an amendment later this week that would do away with COOL.

Hansen says another special order of business passed by delegates calls for support of an expansion in Medicaid in Nebraska.

He says their third special order of business calls for Congress to pass a farm bill.
