Update: Our interview post is up. Find it here.
We just completed a phone interview with Wisconsin Congressman Ron Kind (D-3). Kind is the lead sponsor on two pieces of farm bill reform legislation (FARM21 and The Healthy Farms, Foods, and Fuels Act of 2007). The Center is not endorsing these bills, but we always like to evaluate all reform proposals on their merits, and we hope all elected representatives do the same.
We talked with Congressman Kind about a wide range of issues, including his proposals for reform, commodity title payment limits, conservation programs, and livestock market competition reform.
We learned a lot, and we'll be back tomorrow with a complete post and analysis of the interview.
