01-NGA20 on May 25, 2001

Letter: a letter to House Agriculture Committee from 4 Governors:
Source: National Governor's Association letter to Congress
The National Governors Association supports a comprehensive review of agricultural policy to ensure that farm programs incorporate the most efficient means to promote a healthy and prosperous economy for America’s farmers and ranchers.
    Attached is NGA’s statement [in which] we provide our comments to the Draft Farm Bill Concept Paper and the general recommendations of the Governors on the 2002 Farm Bill. They include:
  • support for farmer assistance programs that provide the maximum amount of flexibility to producers and that include counter-cyclical assistance;
  • recommendations to include incentives for working lands conservation and to strengthen states’ role in the delivery of resource conservation dollars;
  • simplification of state level program operations of the Food Stamp Program; and
  • recommendations to the rural development programs within the farm bill.
We appreciate the opportunity to provide our views, and look forward to working with Congress to develop and implement a farm policy that truly reflects our nation’s needs.
