Convo 64

We are confident that the chair and the ranking member on the Senate Ag Committee — Senators Roberts and Stabenow — will hold the line and be true to their word that those appropriated funds will not come out of the ag committee, or the Farm Bill or even out of jurisdiction in the ag committee. However, there are always attacks on crop insurance and we need to be vigilant with all members of Congress that agriculture paid its fair share negotiating the last Farm Bill. Agriculture donated to help balance the budget. If other sectors of the economy ever gave in the way agriculture already has — we would have a balanced budget. It is unacceptable to us that they come to agriculture first for more cuts and we are going be vigilant and stand against that.
