NCGA: Congress’ Farm Bill Failure Hampers America

NCGA: Congress’ Farm Bill Failure Hampers America

 

National Corn Growers Association President Pam Johnson released the following statement in response to Congress’ inaction to pass a new five-year farm bill before the end of 2012:

“America’s farmers have clearly made known the importance and need of a new farm bill in 2012.  Once again Congress’ failure to act pushes agriculture aside hampering farmers’ ability to make sound business decisions for the next five years.  The National Corn Growers Association is tired of the endless excuses and lack of accountability.  The system is clearly broken.

“We hope the 113th Congress proves to be more fruitful and that the leaders in Congress can place petty partisanship aside to create a bill that benefits all of America,” says Johnson.
