Senator Marshall Comprehensive Disaster Relief Bill Backed Strongly by National Sorghum Producers

WASHINGTON, DC (April 30, 2024)—Senator Roger Marshall’s (R-KS) introduction today of the Agricultural Emergency Relief Act, and letter to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, signifies crucial and timely needed support for U.S. sorghum farmers.

National Sorghum Producers warmly commends Senator Marshall for his commitment to standing with our nation’s farmers and ranchers in their hour of need. NSP Chairman Craig Meeker, a sorghum farmer from Wellington, Kansas, expressed support with the following statement:

“The National Sorghum Producers wholeheartedly endorses Senator Marshall’s initiative to establish an emergency relief program for 2023 crop losses. Last year, natural disasters severely impacted farm and ranch families across the country with those enduring consecutive years of severe and persistent drought feeling the greatest strain. Senator Marshall’s legislation promises meticulous implementation of the ERP, ensuring the aid reaches those farm and ranch families most affected by these production challenges. We applaud Senator Marshall for his diligent efforts and call upon his colleagues in Congress to swiftly pass this vital legislation.”
