Farm Bill Back on Senate Floor . . . Be Ready

Farm Bill Friends,

After a couple weeks of dormancy, the 2007 Farm Bill is back on the Senate floor.

In the spirit of advent we are calling on you to “Be Ready” and “Wait Patiently” for coming alerts on farm bill action. We don’t know the day or the hour, but we need to be ready to make calls and send emails when the time is right, and that the time may indeed be upon us, as early as the beginning of next week.

A major priority for this bill remains passage of the Dorgan-Grassley payment limits amendment. Other priorities include a strengthened livestock/competition title, stronger conservation measures, and fixing funding problems regarding food stamps in the nutrition title.

Stay tuned for details to come.

Wait . . . and be ready.
