FARM GROUPS UNITE TO OPPOSE SENATE SEQUESTER PLAN
National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) reports:

NAWG joined 13 other agricultural groups this week to share concerns about a Senate proposal to avoid planned sequestration cuts in part by taking $27.5 billion from Title I of the farm bill baseline.

NAWG believes that if federal agriculture programs are subject to budget cuts in order to achieve deficit reduction, then the same percentage of cuts should apply to all federal government programs.

Agriculture has showed willingness over the past two years to give its fare share to deficit reduction. Last year, both the Senate and House introduced bills to provide real savings and reforms, with the Senate bill saving $23 billion and the House bill saving $35 billion over 10 years. Moving forward, NAWG would like to the see a process where the two Agriculture Committees work together to make needed cuts and reforms to any agriculture policy.
