Senator Grassley Asking Conferees To Retain Payment Limits In Farm Bill

Senator Grassley Asking Conferees To Retain Payment Limits In Farm Bill

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is encouraging farm bill conferees to approve his payment limits provision in the new farm bill. The measure calls for a combined limit of $ 125,000 and for married couples, $ 250,000.  Grassley says some conferees have indicated they want to strip the new farm bill of that provision which he says would weaken the farm safety net.

He says the safety net is important for ensuring a safe and affordable food supply for the country.

Grassley says he’’ll fight to get conferees to  pass his payment limits provision which has 9 co sponsors including South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson and Representative Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska.
