PRO -- FROM The Texas Farm Bureau

The president of Texas’ largest farm and ranch organization said the group would oppose an extension of the current farm bill, favoring instead a new five-year farm bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives Agriculture Committee earlier this year. Today, the House announced a proposal to extend the 2008 Farm Bill for one year, in lieu of passing a new five-year plan.

Texas Farm Bureau President Kenneth Dierschke said the House proposal is disappointing to Texas farmers and ranchers.

“The Texas Farm Bureau strongly supports the passage of a new five-year farm bill,” Dierschke said. “Therefore, our organization respectfully requests that House leaders oppose passage of a single year extension of the 2008 Farm Bill. The proposed legislation to be considered this week requires significant budget reductions in agriculture spending with little or no benefits to Texas producers.”

Farm bill legislation approved earlier this year by the House Agriculture Committee continues essential programs for producers and consumers. That legislation results in savings of more than $35 billion over a period of 10 years. The legislation also has support from a wide range of American agricultural groups

CON -- FROM Russ Vought, political director for Heritage Action for America:

Last week, we told you about the House farm and food stamp bill -- the trillion-dollar boondoggle that guarantees farmers will receive 85% of their average revenue and spends nearly $80 billion a year on food stamps. Now it's time to let your voice be heard and tell your Representative that you do not want your tax dollars to be spent in this way.

With a lengthy Congressional recess days away, some are clamoring for this policy to become law.The House farm and food stamp bill costs $957 billion over ten years, which represents a 60% spending increase from the 2008 farm and food stamp bill as passed. It also locks in stimulus-era food stamp spending, which has doubled since President Obama took office four years ago.

The farm and food stamp bill is a step in the wrong direction, promoting both corporate and individual dependence on government. Government dependence is unaffordable and culturally corrosive, and it is time Washington lawmakers understood that. The House should scrap this bill.
