ICBA Urges Congress to Protect Farm Bill Funding

WWR Article
June 6, 2003

 

ICBA joined 34 organizations on a letter sent this week to House and Senate Appropriations Committee members encouraging them to reject any provisions that would substantially alter the 2002 farm bill during consideration of the fiscal year 2004 Agriculture Appropriations bill. While the letter recognizes the pressures faced by the appropriations committees to fund various programs, it raises concern "that any significant modification of the balance of funding for production agriculture, conservation, risk management, nutrition, and export promotion programs" will undermine the effectiveness of the new farm law signed a little over a year ago and still not fully implemented. The letter is available at www.icba.org, in the members-only section under "Ag Issues."
