2007 Dorgan-Grassley Payment Limits Amendment Vote

If passed, the Dorgan-Grassley amendment would have closed farm program subsidy loopholes, placed a hard cap of $250,000 on payments and invested the savings in small business development, beginning farmers and other initiatives to create future in rural America. Disappointingly, the United States Senate voted down the amendment by a vote of 56 in favor to 43 opposed. Read our news release on the vote here, and see how your Senators voted below.
