Indiana Farm Bureau pleased with Senate action on farm bill

Indiana Farm Bureau thanks Senators Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly for their support of the bipartisan Agriculture Reform, Jobs and Food Act of 2013, and commends the entire Senate for quickly moving forward to complete its work on the farm bill.

According to IFB president Don Villwock, the provisions that were adopted provide needed risk-management tools and a viable economic safety net for Indiana farmers.

“After last year’s drought we truly appreciate the Senate’s decision to protect and strengthen the federal crop insurance program,” Villwock said. “From day one in the debate, agriculture expressed its willingness to rework the farm bill to help reduce the federal deficit, and the budget savings level of $24 billion in this proposed farm bill is a big step toward that goal.”

The Agriculture Reform, Jobs and Food Act of 2013 passed the Senate last night by a vote of 66-27. Both Indiana senators voted yea on the bipartisan legislation.

“We now look forward to working with the Indiana House delegation as it moves forward with its farm bill proposal,” Villwock said. “It’s important to get this work done in a timely manner so Hoosier farmers know what tools are in place for this year and for growing seasons to come.”
