NSP Commends Farm Bill Conference and Urges Quick Adoption

LUBBOCK, Texas – National Sorghum Producers praises the farm bill conference committee for finalizing a conference report that will provide certainty for farmers across the nation and urges Congress to quickly adopt the legislation.

“NSP strongly supports the Agricultural Act of 2014,” said J.B. Stewart, NSP chairman. “This legislation meets NSP’s goals in providing farmers with a number of risk management tools, strengthening and protecting crop insurance, and including strong conservation and energy titles. Alongside the market-oriented reforms found in the bill, the legislation saves taxpayers $24 billion.”

NSP particularly commends Chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and their excellent staffs for their hard work, perseverance and commitment to American agriculture.
