Center for Rural Affairs Rejects Senate Payment Limits Agreement
According to the Center for Rural Affairs, the payment limitation provisions contained within the Senate farm bill draft fail to close loopholes that allow the nation's largest farms to receive multi-million dollar farm payments. And the provisions do virtually nothing to tighten the porous paper limits that have become a point of criticism nationally.
"This deal is the opposite of reform. Senators that want to support family farms and rural communities should support the Dorgan-Grassley amendment on the Senate floor and fight for it in conference committee," added Hassebrook.
