Farm Bureau Reacts to Farm Bill Defeat

Here is a statement from New York Farm Bureau President Dean Norton on the defeat of the 2013 Farm Bill:

"It is with great disappointment that we watched House lawmakers defeat the 2013 Farm Bill. The farmers in this state deserve a reasonable farm policy that has been delayed for far too long. 

"While there were concerns over certain provisions of the bill, we were hoping its passage and a vigorous debate in conference would reach an appropriate compromise that would provide a fair safety net for the people who produce healthy, local food and the consumers who need help putting it on their dinner tables.

" New York Farm Bureau will continue to work hard with the state’s Congressional delegation to do what is right for our farm families."
